Wednesday August 11, 2010-Garden of the Gods Campground

We heard of a rock fall on the highway near us. It is on the highway between the Cave of the Winds and the Cave Dwellings. We have probably passed this way a half dozen times since we've been here. Luckily we never got hit by one of these rocks!

Today we visited the Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodland Park CO. I didn't think all that much about it, but the boys seemed to enjoy it. Maybe they were wondering if MeMaw and I were born when the dinosaurs roamed the earth...

Here is one of the huge skeletons of a dinosaur.

Another one with the boys standing in front of it. When Tyler was very young he liked to look at books of dinosaurs, but wouldn't go near one, even in the toy aisle in Wal Mart. He would scream and refused to even go into the aisle. It seems funny that hes standing right in front of one.

Here everyone is sitting on the rock wall getting ready to go into the Seven Falls. We lucked out because we got there just after the rainbow trout had been fed, so were able to see many of the fish as they snapped up the food floating on the surface of the water. I wasn't fast enough to get a photo of any of the fish eating.

Here are the Indian dancers performing one of their nightly dances for the crowd.

Here she is performing the famous eagle dance. I also took photos of the hoop dance, but the Indian that was dancing moved so fast that I only recorded a blur, so I didn't show them.

Here are the boys posing in front of the sign showing each of the seven falls and their individual names. I didn't remember that from our previous visits here, but it's only been 20 years since we've been here.
We are growing to a close on our Colorado trip. I know the boys have enjoyed themselves and we will all have memories of our trip.
So long.
