We arrived in Colorado Springs after dark on Saturday night. Terry’s sister, Janet, had told us that her house was right next to the mountains. We had no idea that the mountains would be this close! From her front yard, this was our Sunday morning view!
This from the back yard!
My bloggy friend, Kristine, lived in Colorado Springs a few years ago. She kindly sent me several emails full of “must-see” attractions that her children had enjoyed in the area. Accompanying one of her personalized travel brochures (LOL!), Kristine inquired where we’d be staying. Janet and Ron’s house was in a subdivision called The Valley / Cheyenne Meadows right next to Fort Carson.
From what I recall, this highway divided Janet and Ron’s subdivision from Fort Carson.
Zooming along the expressway, we headed northwest to our first sight-seeing destination. Stay tuned for more pics tomorrow.
