We are very excited to continue our Foothills Adventures Bus Tours this weekend taking advantage of the Annual Boreas Pass Railroad Day with a "Railroad History Day" tour of Park County! We'll be picking everyone up at the RTD lot in Morrison between Parmalee Gulch Rd and N Turkey Creek Rd at 9am then heading out to Como to take part in the celebrations and see the historical sights. Our tour guide will be the incomparable Donna Beck from the Conifer Hostorical Society & Museum and 5th generation Conifer resident. From there we'll head down to Bailey for lunch at Rustic Station and to explore McGraw Park before ending our day.
