Again, here we are. Still in COVID times. Not traveling. Blah blah blah. I’m taking advantage of this time to continue to catch up on travel posts! Today I’m continuing our trip to Colorado Springs. Rob was there for a conference. I was there for fun and relaxation.
After getting up, eating breakfast with Rob at the conference, I headed out for a little adventure. I decided to hike part of the Columbine Trail. I parked at the Middle Columbine Trail and started hiking up. I could hear a stream across the road and saw an airplane overhead. I didn’t hike but maybe a quarter of a mile. I wanted to keep hiking, but something made me a little bit uneasy about continuing since I was by myself so ended up turning around and going back in my car.
After I was done checking out the North Cheyenne Cañon area, I found my way over to the residential area where Starr Kempf’s Kinetic Sculptures live (info) 2057 Pine Grove Colorado Springs, Colorado, 80906
I had seen on Trip Advisor that the neighborhood near the Broadmoor has deer that just hang out in people’s yards. I was excited to find a couple!
The exact location is here: 38°47’11.706″ N 104°51’32.232″ W
These cherry blossoms located on the outskirts of the Broadmoor Hotel were gorgeous!
That afternoon I went back to the hotel to take a nap and hang out until the conference evening activities with Rob.
