Saturday we left Woodland Park and moved to Garden of the Gods Campground. It is a very nice park, but the campsites are fairly close. This put us in better proximity to visiting Pikes Peak, the Royal Gorge, and Garden of the Gods. We made a trip to the grocery and then relaxed for the remaining part of the day. Enjoyed BBQ chicken and ribs cooked by Ole Henry, a food truck of sorts affiliated with the campground.
We enjoyed pancakes in the campground pavilion on Sunday morning. The cash register was on the honor system, just setting on a table was a cash box with a sign that said – make your own change! Love campers!!
We rode the Cog Railway to the top of Pikes Peak and saw the beautiful aspens as the fall peak season is just winding up. The aspens and cottonwoods are so yellow!! The view from the top reminded me of looking out from an airplane. It was very rocky, lots of granite, and we even experienced a little snow/sleet on top.
We had supper to celebrate Connie’s birthday in Colorado Springs at Edelweiss Restaurant. With Irv and Connie’s help we enjoyed a wonderful German meal!
