Pueblo and Pikes Peak


After leaving the Colorado Springs space we moved to the Pueblo KOA.

(Notice: there’s a low tunnel right here when you come from a specific path so concentrate on that – contact the KOA for alternate instructions). The temperatures have been going up however as soon as right here in Pueblo we simply knew our cool climate experiences had been over for the summer time. Not a nasty KOA. There’s a pool right here partially beneath a tree so it felt actually refreshing. Additionally on the weekend you may order breakfast they usually have an ice cream social when you should purchase a shake. You too can order a pizza.

We went to the Pueblo Riverwalk however there wasn’t a lot there. It has potential to be fairly good in the event that they add some procuring. There’s principally eating places there. We went to Brues Alehouse and had a flight. I’m not a lot of a beer drinker however I did like 2 of them A Nitro Manthers and even higher was the Storyteller Stout.

On a Friday we went to Pikes Peak. We received there by about 9:30 am and had no hassle parking. I believe it was about $15 every to enter. In 2019 they had been engaged on the Cog Railway so it was not working they usually had been constructing a brand new Customer Heart on the high and because the building gear took up a lot room there was rather a lot much less parking up there so that they advised you park half manner up and journey a shuttle. The previous customer heart remains to be open.

We selected to cease on the first parking space (there’s a minimum of 3) and take the shuttle to spare the truck’s brakes on the journey down. Plus we received a bonus of listening to details about the sights on the best way up from the motive force who was an area. The temperature on the high was about 55 levels. We needed to have donuts that are a “factor” at Pikes Peak. They use a particular recipe due to the 14,115 ft altitude. Reality be instructed they appear to be only a common cake donut however it doesn’t take a lot of an excuse to get me to eat a donut. We took our photos and left (I began getting a headache up there). We took the shuttle again to the truck and went right down to a picnic space and ate the sandwiches we introduced.

After coming again down from the Peak we determined to cease in Manitou Springs earlier than going again to the KOA. Such a cute city. We stopped for a drink on the Manitou brewery and noticed a sticker from the Dunedin Brewery (my residence city) which was fairly wonderful.

The following day I declared thrift store day. There’s not a lot to do in Pueblo so we went thrift procuring. It was enjoyable. I discovered a pair of shorts and denims and a high. Then we went to Shamrock Brewery and cut up an order of scotch eggs which had been superb. We additionally cut up fish and chips which weren’t that good as a result of it wasn’t very crunchy.

We went again residence to the trailer pondering we’d have dinner and a shake on the social at KOA however as an alternative a storm blew in. It received VERY windy and there was a LOT of lightening and rain after which hail after which the ability went out. So we went out to Cracker Barrel for dinner and by 10:30 pm the ability got here again on.

Subsequent we transfer to Raton Move New Mexico.

Abstract: We stayed on the Pueblo KOA and from there visited downtown Pueblo in the future, and one other day drove to Pikes Peak and on the best way again visited Manitou Springs.
