Colorado Springs and around
Actually it is pretty nice although it is far from Colorado Springs but it was the only place we could get into.
The main reason for the stop was to hangout with Nicole an old friend from way too many years ago.
She is still good at air hockey!
In a rare occurrence we went out to breakfast at a place someone we met at the last hot springs we soaked at.
In Denver we walked around downtown and also took a ride up to Boulder to have dinner with a friend of Wills.
It had a dizzying collection of cool rocks and minerals from all over the globe.
They also provide free rock identification. So I ran back to the car and had them identify a rock I think I found on a trip 2 years ago.
It is very heavy and funky and turns out to be some naturally occurring form of iron that probably weathered in a stream. Pretty cool!
