train trip hot springs dinner group

Thirty-one residents and four team members representing each of CLC’s three communities boarded a train last week for an overnight trip to view the fall foliage and explore Glenwood Springs.

The trip was made possible in part by a generous donation from Omnicare. Despite the more than an hour train delay, the residents enjoyed roaming among the train cars, visiting with other travelers and taking in the views, including the beautiful mountain scenery.

For Someren Glen Life Enrichment Coordinator Erin Hudnall the trip was extra special – it landed on her birthday and marked her first train excursion. “The train ride was amazing; I personally had never ridden a train and was a little kid bouncing one place to the next, rarely sitting in my assigned seat.”

Hudnall said one resident spent much of the ride reminiscing about his previous train trips, including those he took in the Army, which weren’t nearly as nice.

Once they arrived in Glenwood Springs and checked into the historic Hotel Denver, the evening included a soak in the Hot Springs for some of the group, dinner downtown and a bit of exploring the downtown locales.

Days after the trip, residents were still talking about their outing, Hudnall said, as she shared one resident’s comments: “It was fantastic; the river was beautiful, the day was wonderful, and the train ride was amazing.”

The only complaint from residents was there wasn’t enough time to explore, and they suggested a two-night outing for next year.
