Southwest Adventure Caravan

The Southwest Adventure Caravan runs late August, September, and early October capturing the stunning beauty of the fall landscapes. Beginning and ending in Albuquerque, NM, we will discover many corners of the Southwest that other tourists may not normally see.  Experience Santa Fe by trolley, visit Taos and savor local cuisine in each area. Stand in four states at one time in the Four-Corners region of CO, UT, AZ, and NM.   We will visit Indian pueblos and reservations to learn about their cultures from Native guides. The grandeur of the scenery will amaze you as we ride a narrow gauge train up to Silverton, Colorado, hike to the “Palace” in Mesa Verde, or truck into Monument Valley. Moab, Utah, provides gorgeous views in the surrounding National Parks and excitement with “slick-rock riding” in ultimate jeeps. Whether using a camera at Capitol Reef National Park or riding a mule into Bryce Canyon, the parks will captivate you.   After seeing the North Rim of the Grand Canyon we’ll spend four days beside Lake Powell, enjoy a boat trip on the lake, a Colorado River raft float trip and a tour through a slot canyon. Our final two weeks will take us to New Mexico to explore Gallup, Acoma, and Albuquerque. We will have a chance to ride in a hot air balloon before our final stop (in Gallup) at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. America the Beautiful Senior passes (formerly the Golden Age Pass) will save you dollars for fees in Mesa Verde, Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Arches, Canyon lands, and North Rim of the Grand Canyon National Parks. Come prepared to have fun with your fellow caravanners!  Note:  This is an active caravan which travels through altitudes of 4000 to 8000 feet elevation.  Anyone with health issues related to high altitudes should be aware that this caravan involves activities in some high-altitude areas.
