Today we climbed Pikes Peak (by a Cog Train) and it was 38 degrees up there but beautiful. So much you could see but at 14,110 feet above sea level we all felt a little dizzy (I might have been a little more than usual, haha).

We then went to the cliff dwellings of the Pueblo Indians. It really gets you thinking on how creative we humans can be to survive.

After that we then took a ride through the Garden of the Gods, where Mother Nature once again created this wonderous rock forms which only seem to be in a small area of the state here.

I am attaching pictures of these events and hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Tomorrow we will be leaving here to go towards South Dakota. Will probably stay in Wyoming near Fort Laramie. Will see how it goes on the driving.

Colorado Springs seems to be a okay town. Of course there is the tourism on alot of the corners but it is interesting to visit.
