Colorado offers bits of history, pleasure and beauty for travelers. The railroad made Colorado accessible from afar and provided the means for the mining and commerce that drove its economy. We get to explore it all, the grand views, the historic sites and railroad, and the beauty of nature. If we are lucky, we might get to see elk, moose, mule and white-tailed deer, pronghorn, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, badgers, black bears, grizzly bears, coyotes, lynxes, and wolverines. Cross your fingers!
Included meals are denoted: Breakfast: B, Lunch: L, Dinner: D
DAY 1 D
Our deluxe coach climbs the mountains through Durango, Silverton and Ouray. The colors around us are glorious and, if we're lucky, we might get to see elk, moose, mule and white-tailed deer, pronghorn, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, or black bears. We arrive at our hotel in Montrose and check in for one night.
DAY 2 B,L
This morning we stop at multiple beautiful viewpoints as we continue into Aspen. We stop for lunch in Hotchkiss, arriving at our hotel in late afternoon. Tonight we can begin our exploration of Aspen on our own.
We drive to Maroon Bells, the “most-photographed spot in Colorado”. We stroll through the John Denver Sanctuary and its large perennial flower garden. We have more time to stroll the streets of Aspen this afternoon, then re-gather for wine and cheese before dinner on our own.
DAY 4 L
We leave Aspen and drive to the Victorian-era town of Leadville, which has been home to legends like Molly Brown, Baby Doe Tabor, Guggenheims, and Doc Holiday. At the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum we learn the stories of the many man and women dedicated to mining and natural resources. We check into our Gunnison hotel for one night.
DAY 5 B
After breakfast, we start heading south towards home. We will stop at many more more beauty spots along the way, filling ourselves with captivating Colorado memories!
