 This month we have a friend visiting from Croatia. One of our favorite places to visit is Colorado Springs, about an hour south of Denver, as there are many attractions there. Our initial intent was to drive up to Pike's Peak but the road was closed due to a race (we learned this when we  made a pit stop for some ice cream)  and we were wonderfully surprised by this vintage inspired cafe. Howdy, donald duck!

 First time at the Cave of the Winds.
 We only admired the kids climbing here. Would you try it?
 Beli insisted on a photo by the water.

 Hiking trail below. It was in the upper 90s so going into the cave was very refreshing.

After the caves we drove near by to the Garden of the Gods park.

 Holding the rock all by herself!

 Catch me if you can.

 And we ended the day with a concert at the park.


  1. Thanks for this great post. Beli steals the show particularly in the picture of her on the pink rocks.
    Great memories

  2. Magnificent views! You are unstoppable in your weekend trips. Bravo!

  3. I am loving the scenes from your new home state! And that vintage-inspired cafe was so fun to look at! :-) Not to mention all of the beautiful photos of your day trip!!...I could actually see the image of the kissing camels in the rocks too! ;-) Thanks for sharing it with us!
