Our family spent the Labor Day weekend in Manitou Springs, where I was privileged to perform a wedding on Sunday. The weather cooperated wonderfully and the rehearsal and wedding ceremony went well. As an added bonus, the wedding couple had put our family up in a hotel in Colorado Springs, allowing us to explore the area in our free time.
We went Sunday night to Seven Falls, a waterfall with seven different bends and turns. At night it is lit-up with color and is beautiful to see. The colors even made the 222 steps to the top seem bearable.
On Monday, we checked out of the hotel and headed south to the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park. Billed as America’s highest suspension bridge, it is quite a sight to see. We walked across the bridge itself, stopping to take pictures by different state flags. Then we rode the airtram back across the gorge and finished the day riding the incline railroad (at a 45 degree angle).
We returned home late Monday night, tired, and ready for bed!
