The Wildflower Excursions
Community Event Calendar Member Event
Local historian and author of two Colorado Midland Railroad books, Midland Route on the Colorado Midland and Cripple Creek Road on the Midland Terminal, McFarland will give a slide presentation and discussion of the Midland’s Wildflower excursions into what is now the Eleven Mile Canyon and Lake George area. This trip will show not only "company" advertising pictures, but also pictures that people on the train took. Beginning in 1887, it was a very popular full day excursion starting in Colorado Springs, and picking up people along the way. Participants carried home arm-loads of wildflowers. The final trip was made in 1919.
