This will be out last update from Colorado. We will be on the road again soon. We went back for one more visit to one of our favorite places in Colorado, Manitou Springs.

"Manitou", a Native American word for "spirit", describes this beautiful mountain community. Eleven naturally carbonated mineral spring fountains, located throughout this Historic town, run free for all who wish to enjoy the healing benefits. The Ute, Cheyenne and other Native Americans considered this area sacred for the healing springs and clean mountain air.

I am adding pictures of the Cheyenne Fountain and the beautiful stream of water flowing right through town. We enjoyed a bit of shopping and watching a Mime do his thing on the streets. Jerry accidentally hit his money cup and coins went flying everywhere. Jerry did help him pick it all up, and donated a bit for his trouble. Jerry was very apologetic, but the Mime never said one word back. :-)

We had so many more places we planned to visit while here. Where does the time go? Well, at least we have new places to see next time we visit. Colorado is a beautiful state, we will be back later. I hope you enjoy the photos. Check back later for more from somewhere in the U.S.
