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.

I'm headed to Colorado Springs, Colorado this week for a short vacation with my boys. Have a good week everyone :)

Photos from Colorado

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.
Garden Gods 01

Here's a reservoir on the way up with Pikes Peak in the background. This is the second most visited mountain in the world.
Pikes Peak 01

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:
Pikes Peak 03

There's still some snow left up there:
Pikes Peak 02

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:
Coors Field

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!
