    We stopped in Denver for a few days before going on to Colorado Springs, but we basically only worked while we were there, so we don't have any pictures. We actually then stopped in Denver on the way back north for a night, but again, working... So no pictures. We did go out two of those nights to dinner and a brewery or two, and had a ton of fun at Illegal Pete's with nachos and some great people we met at the bar. Other than that, Denver was all work.

    We camped for two nights in Colorado Springs, and the main events were Pike's Peak and Garden of the Gods. Pike's Peak is one of the largest mountains that you can drive to the top of, and Garden of the Gods has the giant rock formations. It was raining pretty hard at Garden of the Gods so we couldn't do any hikes there, but just the views from the car were stunning. The town of Colorado Springs itself wasn't our favorite, but between the Rockies and the Garden of the Gods, it did great on natural beauty!
