road for Denver. It eemed that this
road had the best cars, smoothest
track, made better time, had the most
accommodating employes, etc., of any
other on our trip. On the morning
of the 23th we arrived in the be.iuti
ful mountain city, Denver The par
ty took in the sight of this city to a
great advantage as they were very
courteously treated by the citizens of
of that place. We desire to extend
thanks to 31 r. Hooper the general
passenger agent of th6 Denver and
Rio Grand railway also Mr. Geo. H.
Crosby, general agent of the B. de 31.
to whom we are indebted for the most
of our pleasure. On the 29th through
the courtesy of the Union Paoifio
railway special cars were given us and
we were on our way for a day visit to
Graymount, through the Clear Creek
canon. This was the first sight of the
great Rocky mountain scenery for a

short a distanoc there is no more fa
vored scenery than is to be seen on
this one days trip. iEhis canon is no
ted for one of the f nest pieces of en
gineering known in railway construc
tion, for instance the groat Loop be
tween Georgetown aad 8ilver Plume,
which space is too scarce to describe.
Clear Creek Canon is also notable
for its mines of both gold and silver.
We took car dinner at Graymonat a
small station at the foot of Gray's
Peak which we did not get to observe
as the weather would not permit, it
rained, snowed and hailed during oar
stay then. Special cars were given
the party over the very popular Den

for Manitos, the most fashionable re
sort ef Colorado, Pike's Peak, Rain

Winds, Garden of the Gods, and the
wonderful mineral springs nil being
located near the little oity. Wo had
the pleasure of meeting Mr. and Mrs.
O. H. Mnryatt formerly of Bed Cloud
who showed us the groat sight of
Maniton Leaving Maniton on our
special con over the D. eh B.G. at a
very fast rate of speed we retched
city, but during our stay wis fully
impressed that -Pueblo had srrowu to
I be a very wealthy city, there being
many different manufactories located
there. After dinner we left for the
west, up the Arkansas valley, arnviug
at Canon Citv about .'5 o'clock in the
afternoon. We wero given observa
tion cars through the oal George
of the Arkansas, known as the Grand
Canon. The immagination cn not
conceive of a grander sight than the
magnificent rocks towering like pants
on either s.de for about 4U0O feet
that arc sern in this canon. We ar
rived a Saliue, a bright enter-irising
t city of 4000 inhabitant located in
on- of the most beautiful vallevs of
the west. While Salide is Messed

Salide interesting. After our ride
over the beautiful citv was concluded
we were shown to the parlors of the

where a banqet and ball wa prepared

best in their power to mak our visit
pleasant. The party left Sahda the
next morning to ero.-s the continen
tal divide. It would seem that such
a feat would be impossible but up and
up we co, an altitude of 8000 feet
is reached, some of the party fainted,
but still we go up. We finally reach
the di fide, being almost at the high
est altitude known in railway build
ing. The descent to the Gunnison
Vallij is reached v;ry rapidly, which
was a great relief to get where the air
was of mo.e weight. Arriving at
Gunnison City we partook of a splen-
dinner at the hotel. We then start
on the downward trip again, through
the Blaok Canon of the Gunnison.
The walls of this canon are more
timid than most of the others, bat
the scenery is very fine. One of the
best features of all these canons are
the beautiful clear streams of water.
that pass down each one of them. At
the mouth of the Black canon, nt the
railway station of Cimeron we were
given a half day to fish for the festive
trout that are very numerous in the
Gunnison. Leaving Cimeron we take
the overland fiyer for the Gnat Salt
Lake City, when after leaving the
r craad river we wen toon upon the
bad lands of Utah, which was interest

3d the party went to Gailicld Beach
over the Utah Contial railway where
they have every convenience for en-'
joyment, and those who wish to, float
on tle brine. September 4th we had
an invitation fiom the management
of thcDenver and Rio Grande western
to visit their place of resort, the Lake
Park which uus heartily accepted
and about 2:30 p. u. the party was
aboard for Lake Park. Most of the
party partook of the bathing facilities
which were so grand at this place of
resort. The party as a whole desire
to extend their thanks to freight and
passenger aizent, 31 r. J. V. Parker of
the Union Pacific railway who used
every endeavor to make the trip pleas

us every courtes-y m hi- po-.;i The
railroad service over which we passed
to Salt Lake City aud return are
splendid, appointments good, and the
triveller has everything to his hand
that could conduce to his comfort and'
his pleasure. We also wish to men
tion the fact that the 3Ietropolitan
hotel is one of the best in Salt Lake
city, and 3Ir. W. H. Dittmer, mana
ger of the same made it very pleasant
for the party while stopping there.
After a few days stay in Salt Lake
City we started home over the great

Arriving at Cheyenne we were shows

of 8000 population. Leaving Chey

the B. & M. road in their palace cars
for the fertile plains of eastern Colo

more like homo. While much can be
said of the beautiful mountains and
the richness of her mines, it seemj
much more civilized to reach tha
