Winter Brunch Train March 7. While temperatures make us feel as though we are well into spring it just isn’t the case. It is still winter according to the calendar and Punxsutawney Phil. Didn’t he just say we had 6 more weeks of winter? Can’t say I see it but who am I to argue with such a prestigious and accurate figure. (did you hear the sarcasm dripping from that last part?!) Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad is always a fantastic trip no matter what time of year but this particular train peeked my interest. Winter Brunch Train, they call it. Beautiful views and food….that I don’t have to cook? On March 7th First Class passengers receive a delicious hot brunch buffet while traveling via steam train through the pristine winter wonderland along the Animas River. Silverton is notorious for getting more snow than Durango. So the trip should provide just the right amount of snow that you don’t need to shovel, I might add. I can see it now, the sun gleaming off of snow untouched by anything other than the occasional animal tracks. Water rippling down its path sparkling as if it is laughing with the sun. Pine trees dancing lightly as the wind kisses the air. Well now, doesn’t that sound good? Add a hot brunch to the mix and you have a real treat! Fixin’s that pair perfectly with the outdoor scenery and maybe a great mimosa, too. I am salivating already and it’s only February. As the TV infomercials say “but wait there is more”….Live music by Robby Overfield will fill the air laying the back drop to this serene and scenic trip.
