Presented by Palmer Lake Historical Society at Palmer Lake Town Hall, Palmer Lake CO

On a Wildflower Excursion: Colorado Midland Railway’s Finest presented by Palmer Lake Historical Society at Palmer Lake Town Hall, Palmer Lake CO

Hear Mel McFarland as he takes us on a ride from Colorado Springs to South Park on the Colorado Midland Railway’s famous “Wildflower Excursion.”

Mel will tell the history of the train – would you believe that its purpose wasn’t originally to see wildflowers!

The Colorado Midland operated these popular excursions from 1887 until 1918. You will also learn more about the “Midland” itself.

In his presentation, Mel will include period photographs which he continues to discover and add to his collection. And, learn why there are few wildflowers left in the wild today along the Colorado Midland’s former route.
