I'm back with the first installment of our journey. We spent the first two nights of our trip in Colorado Springs. We spent the first afternoon mostly just hanging out and resting after our 14 hour drive to get there. We couldn't sleep the night before so we just decided to leave at 2 am and we arrived in Colorado Springs around 3:30.
The next day after a nice breakfast at our hotel, we set off to explore Garden of the Gods park. The park is full of beautiful rock formations and there are trails and roads running all around the formations. We spent a couple hours wondering around and marveling at many varied formations. It's a really neat place and a must see if you are in the area.
