Vacation Day 2:  Grand Junction, Co - Glenwood Springs
This morning we will transfer to the Grand Junction train station for our 10:23 a.m. train to Glenwood Springs. Enjoy the scenery as we travel onboard the California Zephyr for a 1 hour and 41 minute ride. Doc holiday saloonUpon arrival in Glenwood Springs, we will transfer to the Hampton Inn to check-in and drop off our luggge.
Since Doc Holliday’s Saloon is a “must see” in downtown Glenwood Springs, we will stop there for lunch. The 20-foot pistol, neon sign lights the way into the old west museum-style bar. Doc Holliday’s features a beautifully restored walnut back-bar, historic photos and a potbelly stove.
We will walk off lunch on a half-mile hike up the moderately steep trail to Linwood Cemetery where Glenwood’s pioneer settlers are buried. Doc's memorial marker is situated overlooking Glenwood Springs, because he was penniless at his passing, he was likely buried in “Potter’s Field.” His exact whereabouts are a mystery.
glenwood springs resort
Time to relax at the Glenwood Hot Springs Resort, home of the world’s largest mineral hot springs pool and Spa of the Rockies. This historic thermal spring water has been drawing visitors from all over the world since 1888. Soaking in or “taking the waters” is a time-honored healing tradition and one that is still recommended as a remedy for a variety of ailments. In fact, members of the nomadic Ute tribe were the earliest known people to soak in the healing hot springs which retains the original Ute language name “Yampah,” which translates to “Big Medicine.”
Enjoy a stop for dinner before we head back to our hotel for a good nights rest.

 

Vacation Day 2: Full Day - Whitewater Rafting
Glenwood springs whitewaterOf all the ways to spend the day, few are better than spending them on the water. Prior rafting experience is not required. Our group will receive a detailed safety talk before getting on the river and every person will be issued a Personal Flotation Device better known as a life jacket.
Our rafting starts out by heading up river about 9 miles to the Shoshone Rapids in Glenwood Canyon on the Colorado River. We get off to an exciting start as we navigate the class III-IV Shoshone rapids including The Wall, Tombstone, Man Eater, Superstition, and many more. Glenwood whitewaterThe river gradually begins to slow down and our guide will talk about the history of Glenwood Canyon and the River. From there, we'll paddle our way through Glenwood Canyon before stopping for lunch at our private picnic area in Glenwood Springs. Then it's time to hop back in the boats for a relaxing float down the Colorado River to enjoy the scenery, though don't worry if you're not interested in relaxing. We'll break out the inflatable kayaks for those of you looking to for more adventure  and get a bit more up close and personal with the river. Many rafters think the kayaks are even more fun than the bigger rapids upstream!

 

Vacation Day 3: Glenwood Adventure Park
glenwood gondolaAfter breakfast we take adventure to new heights as we board a scenic Gondola Ride to the top of Iron Mountain. Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, a Western-themed mountain-top park. At America’s only mountain-top theme park, we’ll experience rides that quite literally take thrills to new heights. Glenwood Caverns is situated at an elevation of 7,160 feet above sea level. Not only will the thrill rides have you clinging to the edge of your seat and screaming with delight, but with the exception of the Haunted Mine Drop—the world’s first underground drop ride—every ride at Glenwood CoasterGlenwood Caverns Adventure Park also showcases stunning panoramic Colorado views. The thrill rides include the Glenwood Canyon Flyer, Soaring Eagle Zip Ride, Cliffhanger Roller Coaster, Alpine Coaster and the Giant Canyon Swing.
The Historic Fairy Cave Tour is a 40 minute guided walking tour appropriate for most fitness levels. Stroll along a quarter-mile-long underground narrow, winding passages, to natural water features and includes a stop at Exclamation Point—a viewing balcony with magnificent panoramas.
Glenwood CavesOn the King’s Row Tour journey deep into the mountain on a well-lit boardwalk with handrails to the most highly decorated cave room in Colorado! Enter via an airlock tunnel and emerge into an enormous cave room so big it is named The Barn. From there, be prepared for a little stair climbing workout—there are 120 stairs, with spacious platforms for viewing and resting. The staircase descends to King’s row, after which visitors climb back up. 
We will round up the whole gang for a new-fangled Old West shoot-out using the latest in wireless laser technology before we head back to our hotel. Since the Park is open until 9pm, we will change and head back up the mountain for dinner and entertainment.


Vacation Day 4: Hanging Lakes Hike - Cookout Dinner
Hanging LakeHanging Lake, a National Natural Landmark, was formed by a geologic fault which caused the lake bed to drop away from the valley floor above. Hanging Lake is 2.4 mile round-trip hike to two waterfalls and one of the most beautiful lakes in Colorado. On the same hike, we can explore Spouting Rock Falls, and even walk behind the waterfall.
The trail to Hanging Lake is a steep and rocky 1.2 mile scenic trail that climbs 1,000 feet up from the bottom of Glenwood Canyon up through Deadhorse Creek Canyon to Hanging Lake. The trail to Hanging Lake consists of multiple switchbacks up steep terrain, please do not cut switchbacks! There are several rest stops along the trail. The trail ends on a boardwalk around the lake. There is a short offshoot from the trail before the boardwalk that leads to Spouting Rock, where for centuries water has dissolved a passage through the limestone to exit out of a sheer cliff wall as a spectacular waterfall.
Cook outUpon returning from Hanging Lakes the afternoon is free to shop, explore or visit one of the Hot Springs.
Enjoy a delicious ribeye dinner high above Glenwood Canyon at a remote outdoor dining area with a mouthwatering western chuckwagon steak dinner. Our family style meal consists of ribeye steak, baked potato, fresh baked rolls, garden salad, baked beans, corn on the cob, and a delicious dessert. Ice tea and lemonade are standard beverage options. You haven’t had a western experience till you’ve had a western cook-out!
