Join me on my roadtrip from Denver International Airport to just outside Wheatland, Wyoming, to see the totality (total eclipse) in August 2017. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and very much worth all that driving on I-25!
The Georgetown Loop Railroad that departs from either Devil's Gate Station or Silver Plume Depot is a fun tourist attraction for the whole family. It traces a restored mining route, can include a mine tour and panning for gold or silver, and uses historic, restored steam locomotives. At a moderate price, it's a good daytrip from Denver, Colorado, into the Rockies.
