We follow the Santa Fe Trail, then cross Raton Pass into Colorado. We drive through Trinidad and continue to the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, to lodge for three nights. This iconic resort offers an escape from the ordinary. It has hosted heads of state, celebrities, and professional sports stars, including numerous U.S. presidents, Prince Harry, Margaret Thatcher, Clark Gable, Charles Lindbergh, John Wayne, James Brown, and Dorothy Hamill. Modern details blend seamlessly with its timeless European elegance. The original building, Broadmoor Main, was built in 1918, and is set on 3,000 pristine acres with spectacular views of Cheyenne Mountain.
DAY 2 D
Start the day with a tour of the Broadmoor with a knowledgeable staff guide. Then it’s off to Miramont Castle, where we can experience life as it would have been in Victorian times as we view 30 rooms resplendent in authentic Victorian furnishings. The castle is now a museum but was built in 1895 as a private home for French-born Catholic priest, Father Jean Baptiste Francolon. Father Francolon came to the United States in 1878 at the age of 24 to serve as secretary to Bishop Lamy in Santa Fe. After our fascinating tour and time to relax, we have dinner at Edelweiss German Restaurant.
DAY 3 L
Today we are off to Garden of the Gods. Imagine dramatic views of 300' towering sandstone rock formations against a backdrop of snow-capped Pikes Peak and brilliant blue skies. This is what awaits us in this 480-acre public park, conveyed to the City of Colorado Springs in 1909 by the children of Charles Elliott Perkins, the head of Burlington Railroad. Perkins first purchased 240 acres on which to build a summer home. Instead, he decided to add to the acreage and preserve it in its natural state for the enjoyment of the public. We enjoy its world-class Visitor & Nature Center and have a guided tour of this National Natural Landmark. This evening, we have the option to attend a holiday show and dinner at the Broadmoor.
We retrace our route back into New Mexico with fond memories of a special celebration.
