Twenty-nine members of the Adventure First Travel Club had a spectacular time on a recent tour through the Colorado Rockies and parts of Utah.
The scenery was glorious and just became more spectacular with every passing day! Each photo was worthy of being converted into a postcard.
The First Community Bank group’s motorcoach passed by a large elk that had stopped to rest beside a lake at the resort town of Estes Park, and then the motorcoach followed Trail Ridge Road across the Continental Divide at Rocky Mountain National Park at an elevation of nearly 12,000 feet.
Colorado National Monument, Canyonland National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park offered a continuous colorful panorama of deep, sheer-sided canyons, high rock towers and dramatic desert landscapes.
Arches National Park near Moab, Utah, provided a 73,000-acre wonderland of amazing rock formations, including more than 2,000 sandstone arches.
Spectacular scenery was abundant for travelers during a slow ride from Silverton to Durango onboard an 1880s era train pulled by coal-fired, steam-powered locomotive.
At Mesa Verde National Park, Travel Club guests viewed a spectacular window into the past at the Cliff Palace where, for over 700 years, the Ancestral Pueblo people built thriving communities on the mesas and in the cliffs of Mesa Verde.
The tour was sponsored by First Community Bank, which offers activities for qualifying members and guests of the bank’s Adventure First Travel Club.
The Travel Club will soon announce its complete schedule of monthly tours and trips for 2023. The major trips for next year will include “Exploring Greece and Its Islands” on May 4-19; the “Southern Belles” of Charleston, Savannah and Jekyll Island on Sept. 22-28; and “Spotlight on New York City Holiday,” in December 2023.
