I'd been this a way a couple other times but forgot how beautiful it is as you head north across the Navajo Nation.
Lightner Creek Campground just outside of Durango. With the big holiday weekend and potential for warm temperatures, we elected to go with reservations, hookups so we could run the air conditioner, and a swimming pool.
One D&RGS Durango Station, and hoping it would be big enough to house my travel bug, Put a Wrench in It! We found the cache, left the traveler, and more amazingly, met the cache owner! It's no wonder he says not to worry about the parking guy at Albertson's! He's placed a whole series of caches celebrating the long gone Rio Grande Southern narrow gauge railroad.
I pulled a stupid one. On Friday, July 3rd, I stopped by the National Forest Office in Durango to get a copy of the Motor Vehicle Map which would show legal boondocking locations in the National Forest in the area. Of course, the office was closed because of Independence Day so no map to aid my research project. I had to chase D&RGS caches instead.
