September 2015


We are pretty much buffalo-crazed at this time of year, and since we will soon be welcoming nearly 100 guests for this year's Custer State Park Buffalo Roundup, I couldn't resist including this shot of the 2012 event.  If you missed out this year make plans now to join us for this once in a lifetime wild west adventure in 2016!  Next year's dates are Sept. 28-Oct. 3.
The Legendary Danube 
November 9-15, 2015
On this 7-night Amawaterways River Cruise celebrate the beauty and history of the Danube, one of Europe's most fabled rivers as you sail from Nuremberg to Budapest.  Read more. 

Incredible Copper Canyon 
December 1-14, 2015
Mexico's Copper Canyon is home to the least accultured Native Americans in North America, the Tarahumara Indians, who are semi-nomadic cliff dwellers. The "Train Ride in the Sky" provides the only access to this wilderness and is probably the most dramatic railway journey in the Western Hemisphere as it travels through 86 tunnels and over 37 trestles.
