The Polar Express Train Ride At the Colorado Railroad Museum
The stunned look on Everett's face when the Polar Express pulled into the Colorado Railroad Museum is an expression and memory I will always treasure. We watched a musical show in the heated train depot while drinking hot cocoa and eating cookies before the train pulled into the station. On board, the entertainment continued as we watched Santa and his elves perform from the window. After pulling back into the station, Santa meets passengers with a special gift reminiscent of the movie. The Polar Express Train Ride runs at the Colorado Railroad Museum through December 23!
Catch CarriMy passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
