Colorado Springs - 4 July 2011

Vacation day 1.

Well technically not. Since it was July 4, it actually counted as a holiday.

The holiday was spent in Colorado Springs and included:

Sleeping in! Always a good thing whether on vacation or on holidays or on any days.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo: many giraffes, lots of pine cones, naked mole rats, wallaby petting, the Mountaineer Sky Ride - just a bit scary, the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun and more. The entrance fee included a quarter to give to support efforts to protect an animal. There were six possibilities - I picked the African Penguin.

Garden of the Gods: lots of red rock, some hiking, many pictures.

A good day - sore feet, sore knees, sore back - we will see what works tomorrow when the vacation actually begins.

See you along the Trail.
