Chris and I were able to spend 3 days in Colorado by ourselves before the kids came out with their Aunt Susan. We flew into Denver and drove to Colorado Springs. We visited the Garden of the Gods and Estes Park. What a beautiful experience. We saw some of the most beautiful sights we have ever seen. The ultimate adventure of our trip was climbing Pikes Peak. This was a very intense hike. We hiked about 7 1/2 hours. Once we reached the top we rode the railway down. This is definitely an experience that we will never forget.
