Jun 4, 2006 - Colorado Springs

Hello Everybody, We are now in Colorado Springs, CO and boy am I glad. I'm sorry I don't mean to sound critical BUT I think you have to be a special kind of person to be, not only willing but like, living in any of the Plains States. These last few days have been SOOOOO boring. Since I'm the Navigator, I try my best to plan our trip using almost none of the major highways, we like the back roads much better, you know, getting to see the little towns, having the opportunity to possibly get to see something totally amazing, like the metal...

Apr 28, 2006 - Tearing Ourselves Away from Colorado Springs

We arrived in Colorado Springs last Sunday after a rather challenging 400-mile trip from Albuquerque. At one point during our climb up the "Raton Pass," we could only make 40 mph. Once again, we were glad that we bought the F-350 and not the F-250. (Of course, our comfort and elation diminish when we reach the gas pumps in flatland.)As we approached Pueblo's downtown and the traffic thickened considerably during our trip north along I-25, we ran into a very unexpected obstacle in the center of our lane. We had moved over into the left lane...

May 26, 2005 - One Tired Granny!

There sure is lots to do around here. Yesterday we drove to Colorado Springs from Denver. We visited the US Airforce Academy, the USA Hockey Headquarters, the Figure Skating Museum, and Seven Falls. Then drove back to Denver. Chuck, Kelly (daughter), Chip (son), and Trey (grandson) and I all squeezed into a "five passenger" rental car. Along with all of our backpacks, coats and who knows what all else! I should have rented a 9 passenger van. After dropping all but Trey off at the hotel in Denver, Trey and I drove back out to the camper in...

May 7, 2003 - Colorado Springs

Our plan is to be home by mid June, and to do that we need to get a move on! We also are planning to meet Amy and Jack and kiddies at Disneyland the end of the month. All of this means we have to chose carefully where we spend our time -- a new experience for us. Today we drove one of our longest days -- 315 miles from Durango to Colorado Springs, over beautiful mountain passes and through "valleys" at 7,000+ feet. We stopped at a rest stop for lunch at 9,000 feet with a waterfall tumbling down from a thousand feet higher yet....

Jan 1, 2001 - 1957 May 25-31 - Senior Trip to Colorado Springs Area

Graduation exercises were on Friday night, May 24. Early the next morning we left on our week-long trip to Colorado. We were accompanied by our class sponsors and their spouses (Eunice Holt and Mr. Holt and Bill and Mrs. Wood); and class parents (Mr. and Mrs. McClellan and Mr. and Mrs. Ballard). I was very excited because this was my very first vacation trip.
