DURANGO,CO (KRQE)– The Denver Broncos Fourth Annual “Mile High Salute The Fans Tour” started Friday.

The first stop was in Durango. It is the first stop on a five city tour of Southern Colorado. Fans formed a line as early as 11 a.m. at Buckley Park in Durango Friday morning.

Some beat that time and camped out overnight.

Receiver Jordan Norwood is one of the Denver Broncos players that made the trip to sign autographs and greet the nearly 700 fans that attended the event.

“This is great this is our first stop,” said Norwood. “Just exciting.”

The Broncos’ Super Bowl win in February was the third in franchise history and first since the golden years with John Elway at quarterback. KRQE’s Jared Chester spent the day in Durango speaking to fans and players about the event. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
