Colorado Springs - Day 2

Day 2 was another early day. We started out at Pikes Peak Cog Railway. Because of the high winds there were not going to allow us to go all the way up to the top of Pikes Peak (85+mph winds that morning). But as we got on our way, we got the "OK" for us to keep going so we did get to the very top. I have no idea what the temperature or what the wind mph was but it was COLD! We wanted to do family pictures at the top but that didn't happen. We ran out there and took one picture and then I hurried and snapped a couple more while Adam took the boys back inside for snacks.
I couldn't resist taking a picture of the sleeping Mitchells (all but Tricia fell asleep on the way down the mountain). Adam says I plan to much for vacations and wear everyone out in the process.

I took a lot of pictures as we went up to Pikes Peak. These were some of my favs.After the train ride and lunch at The Mason's Jar, we went to the Manitou Cliff Dwellings.
Then we went to a Dinosaur Museum that was in Woodland Park. It was the WORST museum we have ever been to. It took less then 20 minutes to go through the whole thing. The gift shop is bigger than the museum. We would have been better off spending the money in the gift shop and skipping the museum.

HA! This place was a disappointment! We lucked out on the day we went...they were having a big Boy Scout Day. So, there were tents, booths and info stations set up outside. That is the ONLY thing that saved the day for us! LOL
