We had a cabin on the banks of the Animas River. Waking up to the scenery in the morning was amazing. The river is a beautiful color reflecting trees with currents rippling over rocks.

Well, yes, and a very pretty and scenic one at that. Surprisingly fast flowing and big, given how dry the area is. Get down to it, away from Durango if you can. Splash your toes. Go fishing. Take it in.
