Mothers Day Brunch Aboard the Royal Gorge Train
It’s almost Mothers Day. A day to celebrate a woman that has had the strongest and most profound influence on our lives. As I researched unique and fun ways to spend Sunday in Colorado, I came across this idea.
What is the Royal Gorge –
The Royal Gorge, also known as the Grand Canyon of the Arkansas is a canyon on the Arkansas River near Canon City City Colorado. It’s best known for the worlds highest suspension bridge and some amazing white water rafting.
The suspension bridge which spans the Arkansas River at a height of 1053 feet will literally take your breath away for two reasons. The beauty of the surrounding area and the weightless feeling associated with standing a mere quarter of a mile above ground.
The Royal Gorge Train –
If you’ve never dined aboard a train, then you’re in for a real treat this Mother’s Day! Hop on board the Royal Gorge Route Railroad’s annual Mother’s Day Brunch excursion on Sunday, May 8th.
Begin with a glass of champagne, followed by a variety of chef prepared entrees, and finish it off with a dessert that would make your mother proud.
Take a look at the Mother’s Day Menu – YUM!
•Baby green salad served with candied pecans, blue cheese crumbles, sun dried cranberries, and raspberry vinaigrette.
•Steak Oscar (Beef tenderloin topped with lobster asparagus and Bearnaise sauce).
•Quiche made with roasted pepper mushrooms, Prosciutto ham, Parmesan potato croquette, and sauteed vegetables.
