Add an additional historic experience after the railroad wildflower tour, and enjoy a catered box lunch  on the lawn of the Healy House Museum where you will have time to enjoy a stroll through the carefully curated heritage gardens. The gazebo frames the view of Colorado’s highest mountains, Mount Elbert and Mount Massive. The lawn is a good place to view Harrison Avenue and you can see why August Meyer chose the “capital hill” area for his home.
Following lunch there will be a private guided tour of both the Healy House Museum and James Dexter’s cabin.
