We were very pleased with the knowledge and entertainment provided by the bus driver as we traveled to our destination. He made the trip an adventure by pointing out many sites and providing background history. Ample time was given at all the stops to enjoy the scenery. As a result, we will be taking more bus tours in the future.

ITINERARY

Thrills, chills and a photographer’s dream come true! Travel westward and climb the foothills, heading along Squaw Pass, where you will see beautiful flora and fauna. Our first stop is the historic lodge on Echo Lake for coffee and many photo opportunities of some incomparable scenes. At Echo Lake Lodge you will enjoy a delicious lunch and unforgettable mountain scenery.

After lunch, head to Silver Plume to board the Georgetown Loop Railroad. Leap back in time while riding this 19th century narrow gauge railway at over 9,000 ft. above sea level. Make a breathtaking descent down an ancient canyon and equally exciting return trip!

Then drive through the historic silver mining Mecca of Georgetown where impressive Victorian homes, buildings and unique shops still exist. Continue on through the beautiful Rocky Mountains back to Denver.
