A few years ago, I took a road trip around the U.S. southwest. One leg of the journey was a drive between Denver, Colorado and Moab, Utah, with a stop in Glenwood Springs, Colorado along the way. It’s a route that I can wholeheartedly recommend. And by the summer of 2021 you’ll be able to follow the same route on a luxury, glass-domed train run by the folks who own the iconic Rocky Mountaineer train in western Canada.
Along the way on the two-day trip, the train will traverse jaw-droppingly gorgeous mountains, cascading rivers, desert mesas, and verdant valleys. The oversized glass-dome windows will offer unparalleled sightseeing opportunities.
Rocky Mountaineer, the company behind the excursion, already operates three luxury trains in Western Canada. “The work to find a new route has been underway for several years,” Steve Sammut, president and chief executive officer of Rocky Mountaineer, said in a statement. “We needed to find a special location with many of the same features we have in Western Canada: incredible scenery, iconic destinations, and the option for an all daytime, multi-day journey that is best experienced by train.”
