Of Wolves and Rocks (Part 4)


Even with the current world crisis, and the lack of things to do regardless of where you might go, it was great being able to stay in the Colorado Springs area to see the wolves at the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center.  It was also great to explore the Garden of the Gods for an afternoon.  That said, our original plans included a bit more.  There are still places to explore.  We'll be back.


Places we missed this time due to covid-time, that we'll try to do next time we are in the area:

Of Wolves and Rocks (Part 2)

Originally, Allie and I's trip to Colorado Springs was meant to include an extra evening from the day before our adventure at the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center.  With the world crisis underway, however, we just decided to drive down a bit later on Thursday.  Our time at the Center was scheduled for Friday morning.  This left Friday afternoon for exploring other local attractions.

We explored the Garden of the Gods. The drive around the park was fairly straightforward.  We stopped of at the Kissing Camels, Siamese Twins and Balanced Rock.

Afterwards we found a good Mexican restaurant that was on the way back to Colorado Springs, called Crystal Park Cantina.  We ordered by phone and then went to pick up our takeout order.  We were pleasantly surprized by our dishes when we ate them after we got back to our hotel.  We might return to this location next time we are in the area.
