Pikes Peak Region- Castle Rock, Monument and Colorado Springs

First Stop Castle Rock

     Well I have finally started updating my Colorado Photos. On this day as you may remember, or not, the whole family decided to take a day trip to Colorado springs…our target attraction Garden of the Gods. The first stop was Castle rock, while we did not do anything here I found the sights here just as intriguing.

    As you have seen from prior postings (I know I did this backwards and out of order), my party finally reached the Garden of the Gods. Photos from that leg of the trip can be found under the page: Garden of the Gods.

     Next time I blog, I will take you west of Colorado Springs into Manitou Springs; where we had hoped to squeeze in a few more sights, but ended up getting lost instead, 🙂 smiley face.

     Just for a moment let me veer off this path…. I do not like to use the word lost, but would rather refer to it, as being “misplaced”. Mostly because  it doesn’t sound so irresponsible,  but largely because I have never really ever been lost. Some of the most beautiful sights and greatest memories I have, have happened as a result of being misplaced. Regardless our scenic detour this day ensured that by the time my companions and I made it on the right road, many attractions were already closed. And ss a result I may not have gotten the most scenic or travel worthy photos, but forever the optimist, I found plenty of things worthy of my time and energy. So, until we meet again Dear Reader, I hope you enjoy!
