I may not be back for a few more days, but I had a moment to post, and sort of missed checking in with you....
So, here are a few shots of our adventures of the week!
|Picking up the kids at the airport,|
in our (I wish) 'bug'. Just kidding!
This car is covered in beads and is a work
of art.....and on display at the
Denver International Airport.
|Garden of the Gods|
|Balancing Rock is on the right.|
The road went right between the rocks.
Kids loved this one.
|Leaving the Garden of the Gods road,|
and heading up to the top
of Pike's Peak.
|Okay, now it is getting serious.|
We are above timberline....just rocks up here
and of course, Tourists in cars!!
The air is getting pretty thin at this point!
|We are at the top.|
This is where Katherine Bates
was so awed
that she wrote, "America the Beautiful"
upon visiting the top of Pike's Peak.
|The valley below was stunning from the top.|
|Yes, that says, "14,110 ft.|
|"Rules of the Road"|
There is no room for error on this road.
The rules are made for a reason.
There were lots of people at the top,
who were struggling with the altitude,
so the cautions are clear,
so you get up and down the road safely.
|....And not to forget the fires....|
The danger of fire was still very high.
Even though this sign is fuzzy,
the message was clear.
|There were many "thank you's" to|
the Firemen along the way.
We continue to have a lot of fun....so will share more next week.
I hope that you are having a good week. See you soon....
