RE: Re: Denver

Donna, If you take a detour from Denver and go up to Colorado Springs, don't
miss a horse ride (if they still do them) through the Garden of the Gods.
It's as beautiful before plants start appearing as it is after!  Deer are
rather friendly, so don't be surprised if they approach you!  The rock
formations and trees (some pretty contorted in some areas) are amazing.  I
think it was about this time of year when Bill and I took our trip to the
Garden.  I believe there is still a Santa at the top of Pike's Peak if the
road is open, too, and if its like it was a few years back, they had a nice
train set up (not people size) to see in Santa's workshop.  (Heavy snowfall
forces closure of the Peak because of the grade of the road up the side of
the mountain.  The view from there is pretty breathtaking, too, if memory
serves me right.

Bill and I love that area.

no sleeper car or sleeping on a train at all.... motorcoach to a town,
get on a train, end up in another town for the night dinner and hotel...
next day, on another train end up in another town etc....

From what I understand it hits the following towns:

Starts in Denver, to Alamosa- to Durango(day trip, but two nights here) - to
Ouray- to Leadville back to denver.

Hopefully someone knows where I am talking about :)
