Circling the Wagons for Old West Trips

April 05, 1998|TIMES STAFF AND WIRES

A new company in Colorado plans to let vacationers try their hand at being Old West pioneers, with weekly trips every Saturday May 30 through August. For three days, guests can ride a wagon train pulled by Belgian horses around the 18,000-acre Budin Ranch near Sterling, Colo., covering a mile or two each day and bedding down at night in the 19th century wagon replicas, in tents or on the ground.

Only the price is newfangled: $795 per person (10% discount for kids under 12), which includes all meals, an overnight stay at the ranch before heading out, and van transport to and from Denver International Airport (125 miles away) or from the Fort Morgan Amtrak station (45 miles away). For information on Pawnee Wagon Train Vacations, call Sterling Travel: (800) 284-0367.
