Being stuck at home this MLK Jr weekend, I decided to write up what we were doing this time last year. A long weekend in Denver, Glenwood Springs, and of course the California Zephyr back to the Bay Area.

You can read my report here: Amtrak’s California Zephyr: Denver to Glenwood Springs to San Francisco – Parker's Travel Log

A sneak peak: ;)

The first January after I retired, I took the Zephyr to San Francisco, then after a few days in San Francisco, rode the Coast Starlight to Seattle. After a few days there, the EB to Chicago connecting to the Cardinal to Cincinnati. The Winter scenery is simply beautiful! Your report and photos brought back excellent memories. Thanks for posting your report!

Been through there a few times by train, all during the summer months, including once during the middle of the night courtesy of a long delay due to a derailment. Making a winter trip with a stop in Glenwood Springs is on the bucket list. Thank you for helping me experience it vicariously.
