pasques April snowfall was one for the record books where I live:  three snowstorms in less than three weeks, with 28 inches added in one 44 hour period!  With any luck, we can now put away the shovels and finally appreciate our hardy pasque flowers and the promise of good travel weather ahead.

We have requests from single women travelers who wish to share a room on the Lewis & Clark Trail program (August 2-17) and the Buffalo Roundup (Sept. 25-30). We don't make matches ourselves, but are happy to share permission-based contact information so prospective roommates can get acquainted. If you are interested, please call 800-888-8306 or email:

In the Wake of Lewis & Clark Reenactors on pirogue


Thanks to a grassroots effort by some of our loyal travelers and despite some cancellations we are VERY CLOSE to marking the Lewis & Clark Trail (Aug. 2-17) a "go". If you already have a registration packet, now's the time to send it in! If you haven't requested one yet, we need to hear from you before June 2. Registrations received after that date will be accepted only if the minimum has been reached by that date. Know somebody who'd enjoy this unique experience?  Let us know. Don't miss this 

Limited availability on some of these departures. Call today!

Just for Fun Yuma Territorial Prison


At the end of March I traveled to Yuma, Arizona, for the quarterly Board Meeting of the Travel Alliance Partners. It is customary for the local CVB to show off the local attractions and that's how I wound up here. Thanks to Shannon Gonzalez with the Yuma CVB for a fun time at the historic Yuma Territorial Prison.  (For the record, I was paroled for good behavior.)

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!
