#AllAboard for a trip to Mother Nature’s alpine garden which is coming into peak season in the high country. The next two Saturdays, July 21 & 28 the Leadville, Colorado and Southern Railroad will host the first of its three upcoming Wildflower and Photo Special rides. Join their experienced wildflower tour guides for a 20-minute hike through pine forests, aspen groves and open meadows. View a multitude of varieties of wildflowers at the water tower. Some flowers sighted include Indian Paintbrush, Lupine and wild strawberries. You may find anything from the “local” deer to a mushroom in a wet marsh. Remember hiking shoes, a water bottle and camera. The train ride will depart at 10 a.m. and arrive back at the depot at 1 p.m. This hike is for people of all capabilities and interests please. Wildflower Specials will be July 21, July 28 and August 4 over Boom Days weekend.
