The rest of Oprah and Gayle's time in Durango was spent seeing a few of the town's tourist attractions, many of which are holdovers from when the town was an Old West mining hub.
Oprah and Gayle took a ride aboard the Durango Silverton train. After 125 years, it is still powered by coal and steam.
Next they headed to the historic Strater Hotel, home of the famous Diamond Belle Saloon. At this bar renowned Western author Louis L'Amour is said to have found inspiration for his colorful novels.
"I love this town," Oprah says.
