Fall Colors Excursion departing from Alamosa going to La Veta will include Brunch on this quiet three hour train ride to La Veta, Colorado offering spectacular views of changing colors and one photo shoot along the way offering guests the chance to get off the train to take pictures of the train with the colorful mountains as the backdrop.
