Vacation Day 1

Today we arrived in Colorado Springs around 3 p.m. While checking into the hotel J asked the clerk what the most over rated attraction in the area was. He told him that it was a waterfall that they charge admission to and we were glad we didn't buy tickets to get in. He told us that there was another waterfall that was free and just as beautiful so we decided to go explore it this afternoon. Here are some pictures.

This is Helen Hunt Falls, it was quite a hike to get up to the top. The kids and I were not expecting a hike and we were wearing flip flops. Not a good choice!

We proved ourselves tourists by stopping in front of this house for a picture.
The view out our hotel window tonight...awesome!

Now it is time for bed. I am going to try to post a few pic's each evening this week.

P.S. I bought a coupon on Ebay for 2 free large pizza's with 4 toppings at a local pizza place, and we all agreed it was some of the best pizza ever! The coupon was $5, what a deal to feed our family of four dinner and enough left over for lunch!



  1. Wow! Looks like you saw some beautiful scenery! What an awesome deal on the pizza! Glad you guys are having fun.
