Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Caravan Number:  N-44-E

Caravan Name:  SW Adventure Caravan

Start Date:  Aug. 22, 2015

Start Location: Durango, CO

Stop Date: Oct. 13, 2015

Stop Location: Santa Fe, NM


The 2015 Southwest Adventure Caravan will be in September and October capturing the awesome beauty of the fall landscapes.  Beginning in Durango, you will visit the higher vistas first, before traveling on to lower altitudes hoping to escape early snow.   You will discover regions of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado that the casual tourist doesn’t see.  Taking the roads less traveled you will visit Indian pueblos, festivals, cultural centers and museums. Native American guides will help you to understand their language, customs, and ancient rituals.  You will enjoy touring Albuquerque and Santa Fe by trolley finding wonderful shopping and dining in both.  A half-day boat trip on Lake Powell takes you to Rainbow Bridge (if there is enough water in the lake) while a narrow gauge railway delivers you to Silverton from Durango.  In Arizona stroll through Antelope Canyon.  Keep that camera handy for around every bend there is a new picture opportunity.  Raft down the Colorado River and tour Monument Valley, then proceed to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.  Come prepared for all kinds of weather as you travel at high and lower altitudes – cold to warmer temperatures.  America the Beautiful passes – formerly called Golden Age Pass will save you money for entrances into the many parks we explore including Zion, Bryce, North Rim  of the Grand Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands and Capitol Reef.    Plans are to attend the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque.  We conclude with a final banquet in Santa Fe.  Come prepared to have fun with your fellow caravanners and leaders.

Development of this Web Site

Saturday, December 13th, 2008

This web site is being developed with the intent to provide information about the caravan and to allow participants early information about schedule, route, and what will happen on the SW Adventure Caravan.  Everything is presently tentative since the scouting of the caravan will be done in April and May of 2009. The “Links” section” provides links to web sites of the various campgrounds, attractions, and the general four-state area being visited. Please feel free to comment on this web site and provide feed-back about it.
