Pikes Peak

After visiting GoG, we took the train up to the top of Pikes Peak. That's a pretty cool way to catch all the scenery!



God's Garden

Today we drove down to Colorado Springs for some sight-seeing. Our first stop was Garden of the Gods. The weather was really great (mid 80's) and the park contained some outstanding rock formations. A few pics from GoG:



Elitch Gardens

Rochelle's work gave her some tickets to Elitch Gardens, so on Friday we went downtown to check it out. Overcrowded... check. Busted rides... check. Seedy peeps... check. The best way to describe Elitch would be if Disneyland replaced all their rides with the ones you see at the state fair. Ghetto. Anyhow, all was not lost as we got Xander a turn on the carousel.

Downtown Aquarium

Yesterday we took Xander to the Downtown Aquarium in (you guessed it) downtown Denver. It had some pretty decent exhibits including the random Bengal Tiger. What? Ok. Anyhow, it was cool but the Newport Aquarium still takes it. Also nearby was the largest REI I have ever seen. Wow! It was so big that it had an indoor climbing wall. Of course we had to check it out. =)
