Ole Southwest Tour

Adventure Eight – Pikes Peak

We get up and have breakfast but don’t have to leave so early today. First on the agenda is to go to the Olympic/Paralympic Museum.

Our group at the Olympic Museum
The Olympics in the beginning

We try out some of the interactive events : skiing, archery, and goal ball.

Then onto the Pikes Peak Cog Railway:

Arriving at the top:

Eating our doughnuts – which is sort of a right of passage that you made it to the top!

After we come back down to Manitou Springs, we try some of the “springs” of drinking water. Each from deep seated limestone aquifers and each with its own distinctive natural flavor.

We end the day by having dinner together at a place called The Keg – recommended by some locals. It was good and we had a relaxing time to end the day.
