The Husbear and I woke up bright and early (for us) on Monday and started heading deeper into Colorado. Because everyone likes deeper, right?
We made it over to Colorado Springs and drove up Pikes Peak. The Husbear was “clenched” the entire way up. And when we got to the top, we both had a difficult time adjusting to the altitude.
After a short time at the top, we decided it best if we head back down the mountain, as we were both having issues with the altitude.
We had a nice drive back down, and stopped several times to take pictures.
After that, we stopped at Garden of the Gods to look around. I was last here as a kid, and vaguely remember it.
We left the park, then headed north to Denver to meet with blogger Mark of Voenix Rising and his partner Ben.
I’ve been following Mark for around 7 years or so, and it was great to finally meet him in person. It was a brief but good visit over dinner.
After dinner with them, we then headed a little more north to Thornton to visit our buddy Rodney that we haven’t seen in about a decade since he lived in NW Arkansas.
We stayed with Rodney that night, and spent the time catching up. He and I stayed up late and geeked out over technology as we are prone to do.
And then it was time for bed.
Thank you Mark and Ben for meeting with us with the chaotic schedule we were having, and a big thank you to Rodney for letting us stay in your wonderful home.
Until next time...
