Over the years I've ridden it 14 times! Always enjoy it. Always ride the 'open car' for taking photos!

What is the matter with Louisiana?

I was thinking of Rifle or Steam Boat Springs. Have a chance to go back to Colorado but I don't really care for it there. Wanting to go to Minnesota.

We rode the train in 1890's period clothing. I miss Colorado....the land, mountains, rivers lakes...etc, but not the Loony Left that has taken over........I'm afraid I'd get lynched if I lived there after being gone these 12 years.  Guess I'll stay in "Free America" :suhlute

Stay in the small towns and it's still old school.

You'd have to be nuts to live anywhere near Denver or the Springs.

Colorado Springs is, and has been, the most conservative location in the State. As the second largest city in the State, it balances the very liberal Denver and Boulder. The large bulk of the Western Slope is conservative.
At one time, Colorado Springs had the largest number of headquarters of conservative religious organizations in the USA.
So, it is hard to identify the state as having a single, monolithic political bent.

The gun laws and ban of the spring bear hunt were easily voted in and didn't all come from Denver.

It's not all political. It's also the tree huggers.

Well I lived in Salida back in the '80's. I've heard how bad it has changed.

My Sister in Law wants us to come to Colorado Springs.

I like Louisiana. Got Spanish Moss and Gators. My kids didn't like eating Rice and Catfish 3X a day. LOL
