I personally fell in love with New Mexico many years ago, and don't need much of an excuse to tour there.  But when a new tour itinerary presents itself (thanks to Mark Trujillo, Indian Tourism Program Manager and Tribal Liaison with New Mexico State Tourism) I jumped at it.  The result is our newest Vanishing Trails Expedition.  To read about how the tour developed, click here.

Old West Trail
June 16-22, 2012
Old West Trail


The Old West Trail appeals to the pioneer in all of us.  Perhaps more than an other program we offer, this one allows participants to explore the west where legends live:  George Armstrong Custer, Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Wild Bill Hickock, Calamity Jane, plus all the fur trappers and pioneers who passed this way. 


Begins and ends in Denver.  Full itinerary.
