After Antonito, CO I went to Colorado Springs, CO for a few days. I stayed at Cheyenne Mountain State Park. My site was great, it was on a mountain side. The campground was a bit pricey, but was a full hookup park and there was a lot of room between sites. Looking in one direction, I had a view of Cheyenne Mountain. Here is the mountain behind my RV. In the other direction I was looking over part of the army base just outside of Colorado Springs. This picture was taken from the roof of my RV one morning. I did get a good laugh – Just about every day I saw deer. At my house, I considered them pest. But when they are in the campground they are cute and I took pictures of them – interesting how things change!
This campground has 20 or so hiking trails. I stayed close to home and hiked several of these trails. I also went to Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs a couple of times. It’s a free park and very beautiful. Below are a couple of pictures from the Garden of the Gods park.
Off to Rocky Mountain National Park!
