UP IN THE MOUNTAINS Part II

This little trip goes over by the mountains to 
Manitou Springs, on through Green
 Mountain Falls and lastly a few shots higher
 up in the mountains of Woodland Park, Colorado: 


As you can see, this restaurant in Manitou 
Springs was
once the stage coach stop:


There are many Victorian era buildings here.



You'll probably be surprised though to see
 the North Pole isn't far up the road!



I am taking these photos from inside our car....

The next stop was Green Valley Falls where we enjoyed lunch.  There were some skaters on the pond when we arrived but by the time I took these photos, they had vanished.




I love this old church.




After we left Green Mountain Falls, we went
 on to Woodland Park and I just took some photos
 of some of the log homes and businesses:





I love these icicles!

You and your hubby sure are having a fun time, Bernideen! Also, I loved seeing the kissing camels from Part 1!

That looks like a great place to drive through Bernideen! That stagecoach is great, as is the Inn. And the Hair Hut, too cute! I used to be a hairstylist.
January is quickly passing us by! :)
