ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.

Hi Everyone. You can buy the Colorado Railroad Map from the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden when we visit it on the 2nd day. I ordered it online from them and the postage is more than the map-a total of $10.82. Museum price is $4.95.It helps one visualize where we will be going. Husband and I are coming from Palm Desert, CA & looking forward to cool mountain air.

We're looking forward excitedly to this train adventure - we're from Florida & it is HOT here - can't wait for that cool mountain air! Anybody else going? And where are you coming from?
Debbie Wickman Aug 12, 2014 at 03:12 PM

We're coming from Green Bay. We've had a cool, beautiful summer. Also very excited about the trip!

Wondered also if we can buy our National Park Pass when there. We are from Green Bay and there are no National Offices nearby. We are going on the 9/21 trip and are really excited. We will be driving to Denver, spending 4 days in South Dakota and 4 days in Denver first

Hi Debbie, thanks for enrolling! It sounds like you'll have some nice adventures before the program as well. If you're interested in a national parks pass you could either pick it up on your pre-program adventures or when you visit Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park during the program. Or perhaps the easiest is to get it using the application available online on the National Park Service website: http://www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm Feel free to e-mail us directly (we are the provider for this program) with any other questions at info@mpills.org

I did this program last Sept 2014. It was excellent.
Ryan Kirkpatrick Jul 16, 2014 at 12:39 PM

Thanks for joining us Pearl! =)

I am so looking forward to this trip beginning a week from today.
Can I buy my National Park Pass when we get to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison?
I have been to most of the places on this trip and for those who have not, you are in for a treat.

My husband and I are going on the 9/14 -22 trip. This will be our first trip with RS. We took a train across Canada and loved it. Looking forward to this trip!


Carol Wick Aug 12, 2013 at 01:58 PM

Anyone going on the September 15th trip?
Toni Norton Aug 12, 2013 at 07:09 PM

Hi there-I am going on that date. I am a single, coming from NY. So looking forward to the trip.
Carol Wick Aug 18, 2013 at 05:18 PM

We are from PA and going out early to visit with relatives. I've been on 4 RS trip, my husband on 2. Looking forward to this one. Hope the leaves have started to turn. Have you been on RS trips before? Where else have you traveled?
Toni Norton Aug 19, 2013 at 01:14 AM

I have been on 30 trips with them-have loved most of them. My favorites were Hawaii, New Orleans, Savannah. Key West, Seattle and the grand Canyon. Have never been to Colorado before. Also hoping the leaves are turning.
