Colorado Springs II

Just a quick update as we start to move into our last parts of the trip. We have spent the past week and a half at our friend Chuck’s place in Colorado Springs. On our way to Colorado Springs we forgot to post up the following two pictures…..they kinda speak for themselves, and we were laughing when we saw them ;-)

Hmmmm....why not?

This next sign said…PRISON ESCAPE CARSON CITY AREA, ….Ohhhhh……ok, no hitchikers!

We have filled our time here with getting the groovy mobile serviced and cleaned, training at the local gym for the up coming 24HHH, and getting a little climbing in outside. We wanted to climb outside more, but the rain has been relentless here, so good thing Co Springs has an awesome climbing gym called City Rock. Luckily we did get one good day in out at Devil’s Head before the rain storms showed up.

Another thing we were able to get in just before the rain showed up was another crack at the Incline Hike. If you remember from our July 20 post we both gave it a shot, and for my first time I logged a time of 39 minutes. All the hiking over the summer at altitude has really paid off. Cathy shaved 25 minutes off her last time, and I logged a 32:33 time this go. Here is a pic from the summit with the fog looming below us.

Anyone who comes to Colorado Springs should give it a go…..it is a great challenge!

We spent our last day getting all our stuff back into our clean groovy mobile, and getting ready to blast off for Arkansas tomorrow. On a side note, I was coming and going from Chuck’s front door to the truck when all of a sudden I started hearing this buzzing sound. I looked around and just outside Chuck’s front door is a pile of rocks, and there was one huge bumble bee stuck in a web….and he was about to become lunch….check it out!

Yikes!!! I don't much about spiders but I know a black widow when I see one....sorry Mr. Bumble Bee

We are off to Horseshoe Canyon Ranch in Arkansas tomorrow. It should take us a couple of days to get there, but this will be our first stop on our way back to the East Coast. Hopefully we are going to get plenty of climbing/training in over the next two weeks! ;-)
