The 2006 Colorado Wanderings

Let’s start off with the second train trip that I took with the future MRS. Shuttletrain to Glenwood Springs, Colorado in May of 2006.

We left St. Louis, Missouri at 4:35am to be able to be in Chicago, IL by lunch time with my relatives.

After lunch, we headed to the Sears (now Willis) Tower to take in the views.

We headed west towards Colorado, stopping in the middle of the night, somewhere in Nebraska for a very large hailstorm.

We arrived in Denver Union Station, with a view of the, (at that time) Metrolink tracks.

While we were parked in Denver Union Station, Mrs. Shuttletrain, got a ride to the front of the station for the perfect picture.

I understand that this view is no longer possible with all the updates done to the Station to make it the Transportation Center.

We leave Denver and find these scenes.

Once we arrived in Glenwood Springs, we checked into Holiday Inn Express, then started wandering around the area. Those wanderings in Part Two.
