Our Pre-Christmas Adventure or The Glenwood Springs Limited
Tom and I decided to take the California Zephyr from Denver to Glenwood Springs this time. What a lovely adventure! It took 12 hours from the time we left our home in Boulder to the time we arrived at our Glenwood Springs home (by car, usually 3.5 hours) but it was such a relaxed trip. Certainly beats fighting the traffic on I-70. We had to wait for the train to arrive in Denver so we found a lovely cafe, Common Grounds, had lattes and read the papers. Then, back to the station where we waited --and read--some more. Finally got on board and had quite spacious accomodations and beautiful scenery. Even had a lovely lunch in the dining car. All in all, well worth it! And I made quite a dent in my latest read--Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson.
