Super 8 Motel Durango / Purgatory
Travel Blogs from Durango
Wow Day 14, two weeks on the road and more to come. Tomorrow I start exploring southern Colorado.

... in a funky, crowded diner, and then a frozen yogurt on the way back to the train. Ride back also included historical narrative, but car seemed even stuffier in heat of the day, and Kendra and I spent most of the ride in the gondola. Met family from Chicago and couple from Austin. Arrived back in Durango in late afternoon and decided to stay another night, and found a room close to station. Went for a bike ride in late ...

Before I started my roadtrip, I booked a number of motels at places I knew where and when I would be. This included this motel: Super 8! They charged me for the room at the time of Online booking!
