    Day 2

    Climb aboard the train for a scenic
    journey through spectacular Royal Gorge.
    Since 1879, these tracks have followed the
    winding, tumbling Arkansas River deep
    within the soaring, 1,000-foot granite cliffs
    of Colorado’s Royal Gorge. Your First Class
    passage includes enclosed, glass-domed
    cars offering the most spectacular views
    of this breathtaking scenery. Hanging
    high above the river, Royal Gorge Bridge
    is America’s highest suspension bridge.
    Reborn after a disastrous fire in 2013, the
    bridge and its attractions are back. Walk
    across the bridge or try the new aerial
    gondolas that glide 2,200 feet across the
    gorge and 1,200 feet above the Arkansas
    River! (B)

    Day 3

    morning. The tallest dunes in North America
    are the centerpieces in a diverse landscape
    of grasslands, wetlands, forests, lakes and
    tundra. Arrive at your hotel in Alamosa in

    Day 4

    Crossing back and forth across the
    Colorado and the New Mexico border, the
    Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is truly
    a memorable experience. You will sense
    the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains as
    you travel along the narrow gauge tracks
    through tunnels, above deep gorges, and
    over Cumbres Pass. Because of limited
    space, only the first 10 people who register
    for the tour will ride in the First Class Parlor
    Car. The train’s journey ends in Chama,
    New Mexico, where you will continue
    by motorcoach to Durango in Colorado.

    Day 5

    The route to Silverton aboard the
    Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge
    Railroad is an unforgettable journey along
    the spectacular Animas River. The route
    boasts some of Colorado’s most striking
    canyon scenery. Free time is planned in
    Silverton, a former silver mining camp now
    a designated National Historic Landmark
    District. Continue by motorcoach to
    Telluride, a historical town tucked into a
    box canyon surrounded on three
    sides by 14,000-foot peaks. The
    town’s colorful Victorian-era homes,
    clapboard storefronts, boutiques,
    art galleries, gourmet restaurants
    and historic buildings are a delight
    to explore. The Hotel Telluride – 2
    nights (FB,L)

  • Day 6

    Today there is an optional 4×4
    Jeep tour into the mountains.
    Afterwards enjoy a hosted
    lunch and some free time to
    visit the shops in town or take
    the gondola that climbs 1,790
    vertical feet before reaching
    Station St. Sophia at 10,540
    feet. It’s a quiet 13-minute ride
    from town with breathtaking scenery and
    360 degree panoramic views from high atop
    the mountain. (FB,L)
