Make your own campground reservations. Here are the following dates and locations:
June 16 - 21
Alpen Rose Campground,
27847 Highway 550 North, Durango, Colo. 81301.
While in Durango, we will ride the Durango/Silverton Narrow Gauge Train. I will wait to see who wants to ride the train and buy the tickets as a group so we will all be on the same car. If you plan on the train, please let me know as soon as you decide. There are two choices for the train, the Standard fare which is $89.00 per person (adult) and $55.00 for child) or a Narration tour with costumed guide. The narration tour is $119.00 per adult and $79.00 per child. Let me know your choice and majority will rule.
We also plan on an Old West Chuck wagon Music Show and Supper. Prices for show ticket and supper are about $40.00 per person. Again, please let me know if you are interested so we can purchase the tickets as a group. You can check out the menu and entertainment at www.bardchuckwagon.com
June 21 to June 26
Grand Canyon Railway RV.
601 West Franklin Ave,
Williams, AZ 86046.
While in Williams, we can ride yet another train! The train leaves at 9:30 am and will take us directly to the Historic District of Grand Canyon Village where we will have 4 hours to take in the sights. The edge of the Grand Canyon is right there! This is an 8 hour excursion. Cost is $111. per person. Again, let me know if you want to go on the ride with us and I will get group reservations.
If you do not want to ride the train, the Grand Canyon is only 55 miles away by car. If you don't want to ride the train, stop by the Grandstand next to the depot for the 9:00 am performance of the Wild West Shootout.
There is a Deer Farm close by and a drive-through safari known as Bearzone.
June 26 to July 2
Zion River RV Resort,
551 East State Route 9,
Virgin, Utah 84779.
While in Virgin, Utah, we will drive through Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. Don't forget to see the Hoodoos!
Zion National Park has a length and height limit so we have to go in cars. The scenic byway runs for 54 miles.. There is a visitor center with very interesting exhibits and short movies. Due to the large amount of visitors to Zion, a free shuttle bus system has been put in place to deal with traffic in the main canyon and in the neighboring tourist town of Springdale. The shuttle starts at the Zion Canyon Visitor Center.
Enjoy Bryce Canyon's red-orange-pink rock formations and sandstone cliffs. Watch the stars dance at night! The drive through Bryce Canyon takes about 3 hours to drive to the 12 viewpoints along the 38 mile scenic drive. We will have to take cars since there is a 27 foot length limit.
We are hoping you can join us for this gathering! You can pick any or all locations. Everything will be A La Carte!
