UPDATE: Traveling Daylilies (Photo Thread 15)

budsnbloomsJuly 5, 2009

This is the wish list box I got from Jo that I was telling you about in our other thread. Have you ever seen so many plants in one box. Speaking of which...take a look at the size of the box she sent and how wise she was to be able to put the two boxes together like that.

Thanks again Jo. I loved it all.

This was the first airplane trip for my boys... they were pretty excited:

We flew to Denver and drove down to Colorado Springs. The next day we made our way to Cripple Creek, a gold mining town:

We went on a tour of one of the mines that took us down 1,000 feet below ground surface into a mine shaft:

We had to visit the local railroad:

Next we went to Royal Gorge Park which features the world's highest suspended bridge:

It was very windy and pretty darn scary walking and driving across the bridge. The park also has an inclined railroad that takes you down to the canyon bottom:

A view of the bridge from the bottom:

They also have the world's longest single span aerial tram across the gorge... scary:

Next day we visited Garden of the Gods with awesome rock formations:

This one's called Kissing Camels:

Balanced Rock:

Here's the Garden of the Gods in the foreground with Pikes Peak in the background... that's where we're headed next.

Here's a reservoir on the way up with Pikes Peak in the background. This is the second most visited mountain in the world.

At 14,110 feet above sea level, it's a long ways up there. It was in the 90's at the bottom and 45 degrees at the top. Here we are at the peak:

There's still some snow left up there:

Of course the view was spectacular. They say this view inspired the song "America the Beautiful":

We made our way down, drove to Denver, and went to a Colorado Rockie's baseball game:

Next day we had some time before our flight, so we went to Dinosaur Ridge in Morrison... cool dinosaur bone fossils and footprints along a road cut:

And we visited the famous Red Rocks Amphtheater:

Hope that was enjoyable. Thanks.

I lived in Canyon City, CO when I was young. We used to go up Skyline Drive all the time... talk about SCARRY! I went out there a few years ago & drove it for the first time. THAT was an experience I'll never forget!
