So, after a long, often very cold, snowy winter and the wettest March in England for 40 years, spring has finally arrived. The daffodils are glorious, the tree blossom beautiful and our thoughts have turned to our holiday starting on 5th May.
We considered visiting Canada this year to complete the second half of our original Golden Wedding Anniversary tour that was cancelled due to Covid restrictions, but we’ve decided to do that in possibly, 2025.
This year we will fly into Las Vegas and overnight there before driving up to Moab for a couple of days before boarding the Rocky Mountaineer train for a two-day trip to Denver. For those who follow our blog, you will remember that as part of our original Golden Wedding Anniversary trip we were booked to travel on the Canadian Rocky Mountaineer but that trip had to be cancelled due to Covid restrictions. So, for this year’s holiday, we will be enjoying their new route in the USA travelling from Moab to Denver. The train is slightly smaller due to the tunnels in the US not being large enough to accommodate the Canadian trains.
After overnighting in Denver we will be driving to our most favourite place, the Grand Tetons in Wyoming where we will once again be staying at Dornans in the same log cabin ‘Osprey’ as last year.
We are starting our holiday a little earlier this year as having experienced the Tetons in the summer with rather warm temperatures, we are hoping to experience some left over snow so that we may have some different photographic opportunities. The Tetons have been experiencing some very heavy snowfall this winter so, as the saying goes, hope springs eternal! ❄️
Some of you will remember that due to both of us catching Covid during last year’s holiday it meant we lost a few days. Fingers crossed things will be better this year. 🤞
We look forward to you joining us on our new adventure.
See you soon!
