Backyard of the Gods and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

From Silt, Colorado we left to go east to the Denver space. A pal had advised us that this drive was positive till you are taking the steep descent down into the Golden space. Being towing newbies we had been just a little apprehensive but it surely turned out to be positive. The best level was about the place the Eisenhower Tunnel was (about 1.7 miles lengthy) at about 11,000 ft and we descended right down to about 5,300 ft at Englewood at a 6% grade over a distance of 61 miles.

The larger subject was having issue discovering tenting areas between Silt and Golden. There was a spot in Idaho Springs however they had been full. We’re not but able to dry camp in any other case we’d have discovered a spot. Subsequent time I’d attempt to keep on the River Dance RV Park in Gypsum, CO. I actually would have cherished to remain within the Breckenridge space however the RV Park there’s REALLY costly. It is a actually lovely space we drove via with out stopping sadly.

As soon as within the Denver space we stayed at South Park RV and Trailer Park in Englewood. It was a pleasant park but it surely was very tight attempting to again into our website. We had been solely there two nights so I didn’t get to check out the clubhouse (WIFI was nice within the trailer) or the pool. I imagined pool time can be higher right here with older people and fewer kids. Nothing towards the youngsters I used to be simply on the lookout for some peace after the workday since at the moment I used to be nonetheless working remotely.

We went to Cherry Cricket for a burger and had a Cherry Bomb Cheeseburger – so good.

Subsequent we moved to Falcon Meadow in Peyton CO and stayed in a pull-thru spot. A bunny was a frequent customer to our website. This was location for visiting Colorado Springs and Backyard of the Gods. We went to lunch at Rock Backside Brewery and had an important salad.

The following day we went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. It’s an previous zoo with older enclosures so it was just a little miserable. The spotlight was a bear that had a pool to swim in. There was a room indoors for us to see him with a glass wall. We did the sky experience and needed to see the Will Rogers Shrine however didn’t perceive the way to get there. Now we all know you really should drive via the zoo! I noticed somebody do this but it surely was a white truck and I assumed it was a zoo automobile.

Subsequent day we went to the Backyard of the Gods. Bought there simply earlier than 10 am on a Tuesday and we had been stunned how crowded it was. No admission price. Once we go to a park we normally cease on the customer heart and see the film. Right here you need to pay to see the film so we skipped it this time. We had issue discovering parking and needed to go round (it’s an enormous loop) a couple of occasions. Discovered a spot at The Twins and hiked that path. It is a good one as a result of its not too tough and there’s a gap within the formations the place you possibly can look via and see Pikes Peak. We discovered a cool boulder within the shade and ate lunch there.

Later we noticed balanced rock. Troublesome to get a photograph right here and not using a bunch of individuals in it. Later we went to the Buying and selling Submit. It’s an enormous retailer with plenty of enjoyable stuff to have a look at and you may get meals and drinks. It was an important cease for a milkshake on a fairly sizzling day.

Subsequent we transfer the Pueblo KOA and experience out a wild storm.
