TOURING THE COLORADO SPRINGS AREA

 
Saturday August 14
 
After we had our morning coffee and some hybrid cantalope/honeydew melon for breakfast, we decided to get out and do some sightseeing. First stop on our tour was the Garden of the Gods visitor center, where we learned about the area wildlife.
 







  

Wow, hope we don't see any of these on our tour!
 


a new friend?
 
Once we toured the visitor center, the self-guided walking tour began.
 

 
 

 

 



 


 
 
 
 


 


After the Garden of the Gods, we headed up the mountain towards Woodland Park (the city above the clouds). Along the way we stopped at Cave of the Winds and the North Pole.

We were too late for the cave tour. We will return for it later in the week.
 

 Cheryl did make a new friend though?


Our next stop was closed as well, but I got a couple of pictures anyway.
 
I think Santa is on vacation.
 
I think that is enough touring for the day. We returned home in the dark, unusual for us young'uns!
Til next time, God bless us all......
