If you didn't see this….check it out!

Come to Colorado!!! [photoblog.com]

Red Rock Canyon Open Space

Come on - let's hike where the “locals” go!!

This hiking, biking, and climbing area borders Manitou Springs on the south. The huge ridges of red rock are actually a continuation of nearby Garden of the Gods.

Have you ever seen one dog walking another dog?

View of Garden of the Gods from an open space trail….I zoomed in a bit.

A couple boys tearing up the trail! When they get to the top they fly down on a cool bike trail that has lots of hills and bumps…wheeee!!!!

Goose in the quarry.

In 1886 sandstone quarry operations began in Red Rock Canyon. Using costly machines to cut blocks of stone, they soon found a broad market for the easily carved Lyons sandstone. When demand slowed in favor of building materials like steel and concrete they shut down.

Little one trying to keep up with her family.

Spectacular Marsha! Phew! I'm winded.
They're all fantastic. I once had a dog who "walked" the other dog. Actually, my first husband's dog walked my puppy.
And, the [email protected]#$s better wait for that little cutie in #9. I don't see any sign of them.
