2 Weeks In Colorady/Manitou Springs 2014

Just a short drive from Denver is the burg of Colorado/Manitou Springs. You can have a nice time walking Garden Of The Gods and driving to the top of Pikes Peak. Yeah, the air is rare We enjoyed 2 weeks of doing nothing.

These pictures uploaded completely out of order. Oh well.
