(Meals: B & D)
SATURDAY, JULY 9TH After a hearty breakfast, we board our coach for our Denver city tour. We’ll see the
“sights and sounds” of the Mile High City. Next is a ride on the Georgetown Scenic Railroad. This is an old-
time steam locomotive chugging its way up the canyon, hauling our train past the remains of several gold and
silver miles. This short ride will take us over mountainous terrain requiring trestles, cuts, fills, loops and
curves of narrow gauge track. Next is our tour of the Lebanon Silver Mine, taking us 500 feet into a mine
tunnel bored in the 1870’s. Our guide will point out rich veins of silver and tell us about early-day mining. The
temperature inside the mine is a constant 44 degrees, so bring a jacket. (Meals: B & D)

Francisco, California. It will make a stop in Denver where we will board and ride across the Colorado
Rockies. We will leave Denver at 8:00 a.m. and arrive in Grand Junction around 4 p.m. where we will leave
the train, have dinner and overnight. This is one of the most beautiful train rides in America. You’ll climb high
atop the Rockies and deep into the valleys and travel along the Colorado River. You’ll travel thru 30 tunnels;
and, oh, one thing not to be missed is “Moon River”. I will tell you more about that on the bus. It’s quite
funny. You’ll can have lunch in either the dining car or snack bar. (Meals: B & D).
MONDAY, JULY 11TH Todays adventures include our three hour Jeep Tour over Corkscrew Pass into the
Red Mountains, where a picnic style lunch is included. Then on to the Silverton-Durango Railroad where we
travel along the Animas River from Durango to Silverton winding through spectacular and breathtaking
canyons in the remote wilderness of San Juan National Forest. Historic Silverton offers you a unique blend of
shopping that can only be found in this charming Victorian town.
Then on to Pagosa Springs, CO for our overnight. (Meals: B & L)
TUESDAY, JULY 12TH Today, with cameras ready, we’ll ride the Cumbres & Toltec Railroad, a 64-mile, full
operational steam railroad jointly owned by the states of Colorado and New Mexico. You enjoy seeing
spectacular scenery and an unspoiled landscape, as well as the historic railroad structures preserved on the
line dating back to the turn of the twentieth century. We travel into New Mexico and thru the town of Charma,
NM before stopping in Osier, CO for a hot lunch and then make our way to Antonito, CO. Here we change
trains at Antonio Station and ride the Toltec Limited to Alamosa traveling through the spectacular and famous
scenic Toltec Gorge Valley. We’ll overnight in Alamosa. (Meals: B & L)
WEDNESDAY, JULY 13TH Here’s another great day of “riding the rails”. We’ll ride the Royal Gorge Railroad
along the tumbling waters of the legendary Arkansas River deep within the granite cliffs of the Royal Gorge as
we travel to Colorado Springs, CO. where we will stay for the next two evenings. Today we’ll visit the Garden
of the Gods, a registered National Natural Landmark and have dinner at Guiseppe’s Old Depot Restaurant,
located in the old Denver and Rio Grande Railroad Depot. (Meals: B & D)
THURSDAY, JULY 14TH Today we’ll visit the Manitou Cliff Dwellings, located at the foot of Pikes Peak.
Preserved under a protective red sandstone overhand, these authentic Anasazi cliff dwellings were built more
than 700 years ago and are a rate historical treasure. Yes, you are welcome to go inside and see and touch
anything you wish. Another train ride this afternoon as we take a round trip ride to the top of Pike’s Peak on
the Cog Railway. This 9-mile ride travels along Ruston Creek in Englemann Canyon. The on board guides
like to point out the various faces and shapes (with a little bit of imagination) that can be seen in the giant
boulders. Dinner tonight is at one of my favorite stops that I’ve been going to for nearly 12 years now – The
Flying W Chuck Wagon Dinner Show. I love the American Cowboy music and well as the great country and
gospel that the Flying W Wranglers will sing for us tonight. (Meals: B & D)
FRIDAY, JULY 15TH Today we start home heading back to Topeka where we will have dinner and
overnight. (Meals: B & D)
