Trains, skis, and Nepalese (food)

We took a somewhat last-minute trip to Durango over MLK weekend. While there, we took the narrow gauge steam train up the valley.

The train track was quite impressively built. I’m not sure that this picture does the sheer drop to the river justice.

The train was extremely cool.

Next day, we skiied. Now those are real mountains.

It was a nice day, the snow was decent, and the views were spectacular.

That night we ate the most amazing meal. We ate at Himalayan Kitchen in downtown Durango. We had yak, among other things, and it was SO good. If/when we go back to Durango we’re going to eat every meal there. On MLK day we drove out to Wolf Creek, which was fantastic skiing as per usual. They have the best snow there. Too bad it’s a bit further than I really want to drive in one day there and back for skiing.
