Yet another crucial link in the Animas River Trail was filled this morning with the dropping in place of a new bridge behind the Durango Mall that will connect the Durango's Bodo Park area with the "Walmart area" and Escalante Middle School to the south. Once again our thanks go out to Kevin Hall, the City of Durango's Trail King, who has been guiding the Animas River Trail through rapid expansion. As one who has extensively advocated, used and watched the River Trail come together for over 20 years, it brings a special pleasure to reflect on the initial foresight and important work done by the City of Durango on the Animas River Trail.
