In July of this year I hosted a wonderful trip to Colorado where my guests and I rode on several coal-powered steam trains and saw many amazing sights. Colorado still has a very rugged countryside and there’s so much history. Summer can also be a great time to visit, the skies are sunny, the humidity is low and the people are very hospitable. We spent our first night in Denver where they were still in the July 4th Spirit.
From there it was on to Estes Park where we spent the night at the Stanley Hotel. The Stanley took six years to construct and opened in 1909. It was built by the Stanley Brothers, the same ones that started the Stanley Steamer Automobile company.
Of course it’s best known as the site of Stephen King’s movie, The Shining.
After that we headed into the Rocky Mountains…
At the end of this splendid adventure I was reminded at how spectacular this country really is. I’ve seen some pretty amazing sights and traveled across the globe and the natural scenery, the man-made attractions and the warmth and hospitality in this country is as rich and generous, perhaps more so, than anywhere else in the world. If you wold like to join me on my next adventure then just shoot me an email or give me a phone call. I’d love to take you along on my next adventure!
