Uncle Wilber Fountain is a dancing water fountain named after a man that gave music to the children of Colorado Springs.
We had a great hike today to Barr Camp. We hiked from about 6,500 feet to 10,200 feet. We hiked 7 miles up to the camp and another 7 back down to Manitou Springs. The parking in Manitou Springs was so bad that we had to walk another mile to our the car.
The scenery was just wonderful. The temperature was hot in the beginning, but the temperature cooled off nicely.
This was Katie Beth’s first time to Barr Camp. She said it was a lot of fun. Carrying Katie Beth turned into a experience to say the least.SPRINTGPS_Hiking_2011-06-25_16-01
The weather is super.
We are having a blast. The music associated with Pikes Peak Race is great. I think I’m in the deep south based on the amount of southern rock being cranked out by the bands.
Like I said, “Life is good!”
Karen and I had the Ahi Tuna Burger from the Happier Mondays menu, but Karen’s was san bun. We all shared Lentil Hummus with vegetables and Lahvosh crackers. The chilled soup of the day was Mellon soup, which could have been made as a slushy it was so good.
Katie Beth jumped at the chance to eat the edamame.
We finished with the wonderful House with the Works, which includes Sugar Bacon, Canded Nuts, Apples, and Labna.
But, the dessert menu just arrived at the table. I expect damage.
Well, we are finishing with beers for our dessert. Katie Beth is getting ice cream.
