My wife flew out on Friday. I picked her up in Denver. We spent Saturday touring houses around Colorado Springs a realtor. After church on Sunday, we went to Garden of the Gods. This was my third visit, although my wife had never been there. Three things that have been true of all my visits:
- It was beautiful.
- It was crowded.
- I saw a Prairie Falcon.
My wife was happy to discover that rattlesnakes aren’t allowed on the trails.
We interrupted our visit for an excellent lunch at Savelli’s Pizza in Manitou Springs and for an auto tour of that freaky community.
Back at Garden of the Gods, we parked and walked the short trail to the Siamese Twins.
On our way back through the park, we happened upon a small herd of Mule Deer right along the road. There was a large buck out of decent cellphone camera range, but this doe was much closer.
