We arrived in Colorado Springs very late at night, after a long drive from Philmont, with a stop for dinner in Trinidad.
Being dark when we arrived, and dead-tired, I wasn’t in any sort of position to notice the surroundings. However, when I got up the next morning and looked around, I was amazed at the beauty of the mountains.
I had been to Denver before and was not really impressed with the mountains there. In Denver the mountains are very far away and really don’t form a major part of the scenery. Colorado Springs was more like Salt Lake City in that it is built right at the base of the mountains. The mountains in Colorado Springs were very impressive.
As we got up and drove away I was thinking how it might be nice to return here again one day.over 4 years ago
