Tuesday June 30, 2015-Pueblo south KOA

Today we made the drive over to Manitou Springs, a suburb of Colorado Springs, and one of our favorite places. There are many sights to see there and we made it to one of them, the Garden of the Gods. 

This plaque give you a bit of the history of this area. I first came here with my family in about 1957 or so.

 This is a beautiful shot of the majestic Pikes Peak, taken from the balcony of the visitors center for the Garden of the Gods.

 One of the main attractions, Balanced Rock. 

Another major attraction, Steamboat Rock.

The park was very full today with lots of traffic and we were all hungry, so we drove through Manitou Springs and then we went to our favorite restaurants, the Ultimate Buffet in Colorado Springs. It was a very good meal and enjoyed by all. 

We found a Costco store nearby and shopped there for a bit. Dave and Nancy bought a new grill that I'm sure that we'll enjoy soon.

We're about finished with the long drive from Goshen Indiana and will be in Creede tomorrow. Even more fun!

So long.
