Today I’m continuing on with my posts about our Colorado Trip. All the posts from this trip will be here>>>>Colorado Trip
As I was driving to my 1st destination I was stopped at a light on Nevada Avenue. I was able to snap this pic of The Great Pumpkin, which is a 1500 lb. statue. After some research, I found that it’s made out of 90% recycled materials. Regardless of the time of year, I think this would definitely put a smile on my face!
My first stop was Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum 215 S. Tejon Street In 1979, this museum made its home in the old El Paso County Courthouse. Such a beautiful landmark.
The museum does a beautiful job preserving the history and culture of the Pikes Peak region. It showcases permanent exhibits on the history of the area as well as temporary exhibits on a variety of other topics.
Remember I said this was the old courthouse? In this former courtroom, people can rent this room out. When I was there, they had a recital going on, where someone with a beautiful voice was belting out some melodic tunes.
From there I drove over to America the Beautiful Park, which again boasts beautiful views of Pikes Peak.
I had really been wanting to check out Crave Real Burger while we were there. I wasn’t sure if Rob and I would be able to go there because we had plans to venture out of Colorado Springs we he was done with his conference. I decided to go there for lunch.
Beautiful views as I drove out near the Colorado Spring airport, because I just had to see this Airplane Restaurant.
After the drive out the airplane restaurant, I was tired, so I drove back to the hotel to rest before the evening events.
The previous nights during the conference we were teamed up and we made a video. Here is all the video names from all the groups. They showed all the videos and gave out prizes. We didn’t win anything 🙁
