Animas River

Animas River

The 126 mile long Animas River is a tributary of the San Juan River which in turn is a tributary of the Colorado River whose confluence is at Lake Powell above the Glen Canyon Dam. Here a narrow gauge train, pulled by a steam locomotive, chugs its way along the Animas River in Southwest Colorado's San Juan Mountains.This narrow gauge line has been in continuous operation between Durango and Silverton since 1882.
