Thursday: I’ll pick up where we left off last Sunday. We had a very nice evening with Lindy and Bob, Charlene’s sister and her husband. The weather held out and we were able to take a walk around the beautiful Broadmoor Hotel and finished the evening with drinks outside on one of the many terraces.
Monday the weather was predicted to be really bad so we moved our trip to Pike’s Peak to Wednesday, we had also booked a trip on the Royal Gorge Train for Tuesday, however as the day progressed the weather looked very good so we were able to do the train to Monday. It was gorgeous, I have a lot of pictures but only selected a few so as not to bore you too much. Monday evening it rained cats and dogs with a little hail thrown in to keep it exciting.
Tuesday we than went to the little town of Manitou Springs. We found it a little too touristy so did not stay long but we then went to the US Air Force Academy cathedral and that was quite stunning. I’ve included a few of those photos as well.
Wednesday the trip up to Pikes Peak on the cog railway was very nice. Again, we had some great weather and was able to take a lot of good pictures. Lindy and Bob joined Charlene, Kenny, Steve and I at the RV to check it out and to relax with a “couple” of drinks. Charlene and Kenny decided to stay on with Lindy and Bob and plan to meet back up with us in California.
Wednesday evening was busy, ensuring everything was packed and ready for an early departure Thursday morning. Fortunately we got everything done before we had another really bad storm, this one included a lot more hail about the size of marbles but everything had already been put away so no harm was done. We pulled out about 8:15 Thursday morning.
We headed up to I-80, north of Denver, than cutting across WY., Utah and Nevada to California. While we had a great time in Colorado, we were ready to move on and see something different. The scenery changes so quickly and again, with the pictures. In case you are wondering why you keep seeing Pikachu in the pictures, it is because these are for Nicky, my special grandson.
