For one week in October, chasing rainbows is easy as hundreds of hot air balloons take flight and turn the already stunning atmosphere of New Mexico into a kaleidoscope of dizzying color. Spend 2 nights in Albuquerque and witness the incredible Mass Ascension, fiery Balloon Glow, evening fireworks, and other colorful rituals of the world’s largest balloon event. Another highlight of this tour are the scenic train rides. Hop on board the Georgetown Loop Railroad offering spectacular scenery of the rugged Rocky Mountains. Take a scenic ride through the San Juan National Forest on the narrow-gauge Durango & Silverton railroad, a legendary steam train that hugs deep canyon walls and offers breathtaking beauty traveling through San Juan National Forest. In Colorado Springs, take the cog railway up to the summit of 14,110-foot Pikes Peak for amazing views. This off-the-beaten path tour is just the ticket to chug through the untamed beauty of the U.S. West.
