Historic train tour: Rowan Travelers ride the rails out West
Published 12:10 am Saturday, September 17, 2022
A few weeks ago, the Rowan Travel Group headed west on an adventure of the Historic Trains of the Old West. The major focus of the trip was steam train excursions on narrow-gauge trains. Our group of 13 joined 16 others from all over the United States, and included a lovely couple from New Zealand.
The travelers began their trip in Denver, Colorado, circling down through New Mexico and returning back to Denver. The first question most people wanted to know when we returned concerned the weather. The weather was warm, but not as hot as it is in Salisbury. It was cool in the morning and shade provided the perfect escape from the heat. Bright, dark blue skies and beautiful clouds dominated every day.
After a two-day stay in Denver, the group began the tour to Santa Fe, New Mexico. The journey included historical and other factual information from our tour director about the land, the parks and other pertinent details about both states. The initial drive to Colorado Springs was very scenic, including vast acres of prairie with small evergreen cedar trees dotting the land. They looked as though they had been pruned and were evenly spaced for miles. Yellow plains sunflowers dotted the landscapes, adding a speck of color to the landscape without billboards or litter on our 6-hour journey.
