2011: September Outing

Lisa and I just recently took a long weekend getaway down to Colorado Springs that we used as a base camp for various day trips in the region.

We started the day touring the Garden of the Gods

Toured Miramont Castle.

This wasn’t planned to be RR destinations but what did I find in the castle!

For dinner we went to The Airplane Restaurant and ate inside Boeing KC-97 tanker (Texas Air Guard #30283 / US Air Force #283) which was a used to fuel fighters.

2006: Manitou and Pike’s Peak Railway

Back in September, we took a wonderful ride on the Manitou & Pike’s Peak Railway. Don’t be fooled by the sunny photograph as we ran into a SNOW Storm on the way to the top.
