The formations are amazing
Sad shoe shelf
One of the interesting features of the over-the-top accommodations I was given at The Broadmoor last week, was a walk-in closet. I have to be honest; I’ve never been in a hotel room with a walk-in closet – I have been in hotel rooms that were the size of some walk-in closets, but I digress. One of the items in the closet was a shoe shelf. I sent a picture to our daughter. She replied: “I could fill that.”
I’ve traveled with Faith. I know very well that should could fill that shelf and probably have some spillage. The picture above is of the shoes she took to Florida for three days in the sun while I was in a series of meetings.
For the benefit of women who haven’t traveled with men like me, permit me to explain how I pack. All the pants and shirts in my suitcase go with a navy jacket, a black belt and black shoes. Since I knew I was hiking on Thursday, I wore my low-cut hiking shoes. That was easy, since those are my everyday shoes.
I sent faith the picture under the badge, and she responded:
“Aw, you made the shoe shelf sad.”
This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner, I’d encourage you to join in on the fun. You can follow this link to participate and to see the one-liners from the other participants.
Today’s pictures are from that hike on Thursday, to the Garden of the Gods.
I was in a van with no ability to stop and wait for selfie-guy to wrap it up and leave.
The park was crowded. The main parking lot was full, so our hike would begin where we could find parking.
I’ll take that advice.
That rock formation is known as The Siamese Twins – thats our first stop.
Siamese Twins – the rock formation
Our guide offered to take pictures of us, sitting in the opening in the Siamese Twins formation. That’s Pike’s Peak behind me.
Our hike included many breaks for us to walk around and take pictures on our own.
Tough place to be a tree
The formations are amazing
Those antennae are for private/commercial use, but NORAD’s Cheyenne Mountain Complex in in that mountain.
We’re heading in that direction.
This is something you don’t see in Connecticut.
“Old Indian?” The reddish color is due to oxidation of the iron in the rock. The white areas either haven’t oxidized as much or have less iron content.
Back of the Kissing Camels.
Our guide told us to look for a big footprint. If you see it, let me know.
These formations popped up all along our hike.
It may be the fact that I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, but I think I see a panther.
This formation is known as Three Graces.
Do you see “the kissing camels” ?
These formations have been pushed up as a result of a collision along a fault line.
They refer to the formations as “fins” since they look like fins sticking up through the earth.
