Gray Line Denver Mountain Parks Tour - $31.00
This tour leaves Denver by traveling west into the
foothills, a transitional area between the Great Plains to the east of
Denver and the majestic Rockies just a few miles farther to the west. The
first park we'll stop in is Red Rocks, and it will be apparent how the
park got its name from the beautiful color of the geology all around.
There will be time for walking and pictures as well as for refreshments.
From there we'll continue up Bear Creek Canyon through several forest
communities. Wildlife may be seen throughout the trip including deer, elk,
and the great North American Bison, also called the buffalo. The final
stop on the tour is at Buffalo Bill Cody's gravesite and museum, which
overlooks the entire Denver area. Then it's back to Denver, passing
Golden, the home of Coors beer and the Colorado School of Mines.

Gray Line Denver City Tour - $31.00
An intimate view of renowned modern and historic city sights.
Departing from the pickup point, we begin with a scenic drive into the
eastern suburbs, graced by distinctive residential areas, with stops at
two of Denver's over 200 outstanding city parks. Then we drive to a
promontory where we alight for 'photo ops' of the city's impressive
skyline and of the Museum of Natural History. Next, we tour the town
proper, viewing such prominent structures as the 19th
century Governor's mansion and major sports arenas.

JHB International Tour - $12.00
There is so much to see at JHB that the tour group will break up
into 3 sections and rotate through a three-part tour, spending about an
hour doing each of the three parts. There will be a meeting with Mrs. Barr
in the board room, where drinks and cookies will be provided. An assistant
will give a tour of the building, which will include the Product
Development Department, Import and Export operations, Shipping, Receiving,
Sales & Marketing, Data Processing, Accounting and Carding activities
(JHB is one of the few companies that continues to custom hand-card. This
process, although labor intensive, enables JHB to include the delicate and
beautiful buttons for which the company is known throughout the world!),
and which will end in the museum, where most, or all, of the buttons that
JHB has sold are on display, as well as books and thimbles. The third part
of the tour will be a visit to the Backdoor, where we will be able to buy
buttons!! (Limited to 110 participants)

spectacular narrow gauge train rides by many. The historic narrow gauge

in mining and railroad history, and will take you over the reconstructed
Devil's Gate High Bridge which stands 95 feet above Clear Creek and

yesteryear enjoyed. The ticket cost includes a box lunch.
