We've been living in Colorado Springs for almost two weeks now, and due to John working fulltime, and my online classes/being an awesome little homemaker, we haven't gotten out much. This morning I woke up and decided it was time to do some exploring. So obviously I googled "fun things to do in CO Springs," and up popped a list of 50 something options. Number one on the list was the Garden of the Gods! Sounds exotic doesn't it? One of John's co-workers told him previously that it is a must see, so we sweatered up and headed out.
John drove while I navigated (I'm super good at navigating), and it took about 13.5 minutes to get there. The views were breathtaking. The orange rock created perfect contrast with the bright blue sky, and I believe I did an OK job of capturing it for my followers. By the way, you guys are amazing! Stats are up--yesterday we had 30 something views. Not too shabby! Keep up the good work.........
You know what I hate? I don't hate a lot of things, but I can honestly say I hate what I experienced today. The wind. I'm not talking about a nice refreshing summer breeze, because I don't mind that, I'm talking about cold, icy, chill me to the bone kind of wind. You know, the kind that ruins all outdoor plans? Di-sgus-ting. This wind blows in Rexburg, ID just about every day of the year (minus a few in the summer). I thought that I was getting away from that wind when we moved here, but the last few days have been pretty bad.
When we headed out to the car this morning it was a little breezy, nothing my new, soft, 100% polyester sweater can't handle (see photo above). It was designed in Boston, and made in China. I guess Avalanche (the brand) decided that the sweater would be more marketable/exciting if people knew that even though it was made in China, it was designed not only in the USA, but in Boston... Cool. So anyway, we get to the Garden of the Gods (read with a deep announcer voice), and the icy wind begins to blow. It tried to ruin our plans, but we hiked around anyway, and ended up with very sore ears. It was totally worth it. Hopefully we'll be able to go back when it gets a little warmer.
Anyway, we are going to watch an episode of 24 netflix style, and then head to Chipotle for lunch. Ever been there? We've heard it's good and want to try it out. Hope you all have an adventurous Saturday :)
