The new year has arrived, which means it’s time to launch a new set of resolutions. I don’t bother with sure-to-be-broken vows such as “eat healthier,” “save more” and “quit screaming at the TV when the Broncos blow the lead.”
Instead, I set travel resolutions. Here are five of mine for the upcoming year.
Take the train: The clacking of rails, the swaying of cars and the fact that I don’t have to pass through TSA to get on board makes me love train travel.
Colorado boasts at least eight historic rail routes, some offering coal-fired steam engines while others feature modern, diesel-electric locomotives. Add to that a pair of passenger-carrying Amtrak lines.
Thus far, I’ve ridden five of the tourist trains, plus Amtrak’s California Zephyr between Denver and Glenwood Springs. For 2016, I resolve to knock at least one more rail route off the undone list.
Venture to the other side: I’ll admit that I suffer from Front Range Syndrome — a condition causing those of us who live here to believe there’s absolutely nothing of interest east of Aurora.
