Today was a travel day, leaving Golden for the Colorado Springs area. There was not all that much to see along I-25,
although we did get our first glimpse of 14,000+ foot Pike Peak,
which we’ll summit (via the cog railway) this coming Tuesday.
Our campground in Manitou Springs is in the shadow of the mountain and visible from our campsite!
We were surprised to find that one of our “fellow campers” had eight legs and a red hourglass-shaped marking on its back.
I also shot some pictures of one of our fellow traveler couples, Debi and Dave Normington’s incredibly cute dog.
We ended the day with a Mexican-themed pot-luck dinner, ice cream supplied by the campground and another of our outdoor movie nights watching A Night at the Museum.
