Quote of the Month

Eastward I go only by force;

but westward I go free...

that way the nation is moving, and I may say that mankind progresses from east to west.


Henry David Thoreau

When I log on to my Constant Contact account I receive a rotating message which always makes me smile.  Right now it says "Thank you!  You're awesome. We appreciate your business! 


I know it isn't personalized, and I know every one of their hundreds of thousands of clients sees it, but it still makes me feel good.  They don't have to do it.


We all need to be told once in awhile that we are not taken for granted.  It reminded me that I need to tell you more often how much I appreciate your business, your feedback and your friendship.


Thank you!

Not only is El Camino Real the most unique Vanishing Trails Expedition we've ever offered, but it happily coincides with two anniversaries this year in the Land of Enchantment.  The Las Cruces Farmers & Crafts Market is the Number One farmers & crafts market in the nation, plus it is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.  We will have time to explore this heritage-rich market on Day # 3.

New Mexico 100

New Mexico was the 47th state to enter the Union, and is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year (with a really cool license plate).  Statehood activities are planned throughout the year including the brand new exhibit at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Museum, one of the highlights of our tour.

Buffalo Roundup Countdown

Park rangers round up the buffalo

September 22-27, 2012 


Last year's popular buffalo roundup program filled up the first week in March, and it looks like

we are going to beat that record this year, even with added capacity.


As of today there are only 15 seats left for the Custer State Park Buffalo Roundup program (September 22-26, 2012).  Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime experience in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.  Book today!

Jefferson MemorialLast Call
There is still limited availability for the 100th Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC, (April 12-16) so if you've been thinking about this one, it's time to act!

The Kenya Safari Adventure (May 14-26) closes February 15.  If this is on your to-do list, get your reservation in without delay!


Here is a story that appeals to both sports fans and history buffs.  It's a tale of the western frontier which winds up - really - at the Super Bowl!  (I love a story with a twist.)  I call it Custer's Last Band and it's my New Year's gift to you.




Feel free to contact us with any questions at 800-888-8306.


We look forward to seeing you on the trail this season.


Happy Trails!
