A journey through the Rocky Mountains isn’t just a trip from point A to point B. It’s a ride you’ll want to savor as best you can by taking in all the views along the way. A new luxury train route is designed to help passengers do just that. Courtesy of Rocky Mountaineer, the Rockies to the Red Rocks journey started operating on August 16, 2021, bringing passengers from Moab, Utah, to Denver, Colorado through Utah’s iconic natural arches and the Rocky Mountains, stopping overnight in Colorado’s Glenwood Springs.
