On Monday, we drove from Denver to Colorado Springs. Here is a view of Pike's Peak from the road.
After checking in to our hotel, we went to Garden of the Gods. This area has some beautiful, red rock formations.
We watched a mountain scrambler (I would have called him a mountain climber) get ready to scramble up the mountain. It was fascinating to watch! A lot like the rock walls you can climb at malls and fairs. It looked like there was no place to put his fingers or toes, but he kept climbing higher...
... and higher! (Can you see him above & a little to the left of the tree?)
Alexandra and I at the Manitou Cliff Dwellings. We were amazed at how short the doors were. Does any one know... were the people that much shorter??? (I meant to ask at the museum, and plan on looking into it.)
