Trains, Balloons & the Grand Canyon

Trains, Balloons & the Grand Canyon

October 2 - 12, 2023

Fly into Denver as we explore Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods and the Royal Gorge before experiencing two scenic narrow-gauge railroads. Cumbres and Toltec traverses sheer rock faces before it ascends

through the alpine meadows of the Chama Valley, exceeding 10,000 ft. Not to be outdone, the Durango- Silverton narrow gauge railroad ascends the Animas River Canyon with incredible views of awe-inspiring wilderness.

 

Layered bands of multicolored rock reveal millions of years of geological history and the sunset views from Mather Point at the rim of the Grand Canyon are magical. We will stay on the South Rim at the Thunderbird Lodge where you can stroll out your door for incredible canyon views. Sedona’s Red Rock Butte’s, steep canyons, majestic scenery and thriving arts community will be another spectacular two-night stay. Then its’ on to Albuquerque for The International Balloon festival. You will never forget the mass ascension of hundreds of multi-colored   balloons, an aerial light show, and celebratory fireworks.
