This detailed two-day trip is made on trains with innovative, private dome cars, which provide a panoramic view of the dramatic scenery above your head as well as alongside the train. It runs from California to Colorado, stretching across the Sacramento Valley and twisting through the Sierra Nevada into the Utah desert regions, then climbing the magnificent Rocky Mountains before reaching Denver.

Denver, Colorado - October weather

I am thinking of going on a 3 week Fly-Drive holiday to Denver, Colorado in October. What will the weather and average temperature be during that time of the year, and what time does it get dark in the evening?

I would be grateful for your expert advice.Thank you.
