Jun 23, 2006 - Colorado

Were getting closer to our starting point of this trip, Silverdale,Wa.It's amazing how fast time go's when your having FUN. Were at Monument,Colorado.Only a few miles North of Colorado Springs.We went to the Garden of the Gods, near there yesturday.It was awsome to see the beautiful rock formations. We walked on the pathways for awhile. Judy is doing a lot better walking. A thunderstorm was brewing (the Coors plant was nearby, I just had to say that..ha ha)so we departed before we got dumped on. Went back to our hotel on wheels at...

Jun 20, 2006 - Colorado Springs, Part 2

(From Bill: I know this can be a bit confusing but I am posting three updates on one date. Sorry if it seems strange but I think it will be easy enough to follow.) Pita's Diary - Colorado Springs - Day 3 Another restful morning - Hallelujah! Mom and Dad did go out for a little while to a restaurant Dad used to frequent, but when they got there neither of them were hungry. You see, Mom had made Dad an omelet and bagel with cream cheese for his Father's Day breakfast (his choice). We gave him our gift and the card I got him that said, "From...

Jun 18, 2006 - Colorado Springs,--Part 1

Pita's Diary - Colorado Springs - Day 1 Boy, you should have seen Dad get out of that tight spot in Santa Fe! You'd think he has been doing this for years. Our "pull-through" spot became a "back-out". I helped! I watched for trees from the passenger seat while Mom watched from outside behind the trailer. After they were away from the campsite, Mom and Dad asked each other how they had gotten into that spot in the first place. We left at 7:02 am. I settled right in this time -I thought I'd give the "old boy" a break. Ha! Ha! We stopped once...

Jun 17, 2006 - Manitou Cliff Dwellings

Hi There, On Saturday, June 17th we went to Uncle Sams Pancake House for breakfast. It is decorated with a patriotic theme to go along with the name. The food was very good and we ate there twice while at Manitou Springs. When we left the restaurant there was a large mule deer right beside the parking lot. It ignored us and went on eating the grass next to the parking lot while I got my camera and snapped a couple of pictures. Betty and I had decided to visit the Manitou Cliff Dwellings after breakfast. It was only a short drive from the...

Jun 16, 2006 - The Cog Railway And Pikes Peak

Hi to you all again, Friday morning June 16th we had a blueberry pancake breakfast that I cooked outside on the picnic table. We had reservations for the 10:40 Cog Railway trip to the summit of Pikes Peak, so we didn't want to waste to much time going out somewhere for breakfast. I cooked the pancakes on an old cast iron griddle with our Coleman propane stove. They came out pretty good. We drove to the railway station and arrived at about 10:10 AM. We picked up our tickets, looked around the station for a little while and then went out to...

Jun 15, 2006 - Manitou Springs, Colorado

Hi Again, Yesterday, June 14th, we left Sante Fe and drove up I-25 to Colorado Springs. We are actually staying about 4 miles in from the Interstate at Pikes Peak RV Park in Manitou Springs. We can see Pikes Peak very well from the campground. This is the same campground we stayed in when we were here in 2001. During that visit we drove to the summit of Pikes Peak in a car we rented. Tomorrow we have reservations on the Cog Railway that will take us up to the top. I will be able to take more picture this time as I won't be driving. Today we...

Jun 14, 2006 - On the Road to Colorado Springs

Here we go on the road to Springs, well Sandra decided to get 2nd cup of coffee while I am driving down the road (HWY 25 N)and as she opened the frig out flew a can of Diet Dr.Pepper (Van/Cherry) with a hole in it (now remember we are now 6200 ft up) I had no idea what was going on in the middle of our cabin however Sandra told me all about it, the Dr.Pepper had sprayed all over the entire floor, refrig, wall, door and ceiling in the middle of cabin. She was glad it was red in color so she could see where to clean it up. What fun we are...

Jun 8, 2006 - It's A Zoo Out There

I don't always have clever titles to my entries but I couldn't resist this one. It refers to most of the pictures attached here and not to the week that we had in Colorado Springs. Our week was actually filled with shopping for our coach, meeting new friends and visiting with old friends from Littleton, CO. Florence has always maintained that men do the decorating inside these recreation vehicles because the color schemes and fabrics are usually questionable if not horrible. After talking to some factory reps, we learned that she is right....

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...

Jun 4, 2006 - Colorado Springs

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...

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...
