When Kevin Patterson was riding his bicycle in Glenwood Springs earlier this week, he stopped by the Amtrak station. He was curious how many riders were on the train, given the restrictions on group gatherings and increasing shelter-in-place orders.
Two passengers, an employee told him.
Patterson, who operates the Glenwood Canyon Resort, relayed the story to Lisa Langer, the city’s director of tourism. She had also just spoken with a man in Utah who wondered what would be open in Glenwood Springs on his upcoming train trip. Langer told him of the governor’s order to close all bars and restaurants except for take-out service.
