We did the Durango Silverton railroad about 4 years ago. It was definitely scenic. It returns from Silverton the same day, so you can collect your vehicle once you're back. Bettie did the round trip, but I got off part way up and took the zipline, which was huge fun. Take the cable lift up a tree about 150', walk around the open platform on the tree, clip on the zipline and step off. Land on the next platform, unclip, walk around, re-clip and away you go. We made 32 traverses from tree, mostly across a river with Class 5 rapids. Here's the link:
'83 FJ40 (stockish)
'97 LX450 (built)
'11 Kamparoo
