Friday Field Trip - Pikes Peak

Today I'm over at Savvy Authors with a blog about R.U.E.

Yesterday I mentioned that Hubster took charge of our anniversary reservations. We stayed at the Cliff House in Manitou Springs, which was a very elegant change from Divide establishments. Wait. There are no hotels in Divide. Anyway, here's a glimpse of our room. Note the turndown service in the last one. And something I've never seen before. They laid little foot mats at each side of the bed. Not that the floor was cold--it's summer and there was carpeting.

We wandered around town for a while. This is one of the old cog railroad engines.

The next day, we went to the Cog Railway for our trip up to the Pikes Peak Summit. This is what the new trains look like:

And here are some views from the top:
End of the line:

I'm not sure this will work, but I've uploaded all the Pikes Peak pictures into a Google/Picasa album thingie. This should be the LINK. If it doesn't work, let me know and I'll try to see about fixing it.

Have a safe Labor Day Weekend, everyone!

Mom - was a very nice getaway.

Stunning pictures and what a wonderful place you stayed in. I just love all those extra little touches some B&B's have.

Terry Odell said...

Thanks, Maryann. This was more than a B&B, but still had lots of perks. I didn't mention the heated toilet seats in my post!

Looks like you had a very pleasant anniversary! I love the old fashion decor in the room. :3
