Merry Christmas everyone - Jack and I will be showing you our Chrimble Day in another post.
Just for the monument you'll just have to catch up with Colorado. Life - his not mine - got in the way of getting around to this - no priorities I aspose. (Sorry bear, I'll try to keep up honest.) Humph, just see that you do.
Well ANYWAY we reached our lovely bed and breakfast in Colorado Springs late on Thursday and wondered what to do. We thought about going up Pike's Peak on the Friday or the Saturday, until Alan noticed that Saturday would mean the "Santa Special" whatever that means, but that sounded fine to me. Somehow the humans thought that a bad idea 'cos it only goes half way up the hill and they wanted to go all the way up. So Santa was ditched and we went on the Friday instead.
I think that this is the highest I've ever been without a nairyplane, and I liked the pretty sign with the snow on the top.
Soon we got called back to the train and before we went down I went and met our friend Darrell the conductor. Isn't he a very nice man.
At the bottom was Manitou Springs, a lovely wee town and we said we'd be back, but you'll just have to watch out for the next instalment for that.
