Today, we spent the day down in the 'Springs, Colorado Springs, that is. We went to the old courthouse which houses the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. Visit their site for further info. We wanted to see the Quilts and Fine Woodworking exhibit, but there was so much more to see! Jim's mom is a great tour guide, and we all enjoyed viewing the outstanding, and creative quilts and exquisite tables, dressers, and other wood crafts. The rest of the museum is dedicated to the history of the Pikes Peak Region. Very interesting, and a must see stop if you're ever in the area!
We all filled numerous bags at Dollar Tree, then enjoyed a tasty, gourmet-type lunch at Gertrude's in the historic Old Colorado district where the streets are lined with quaint shops, with everything imaginable inside.
Michael Garman has a gallery in old town, where the art is for people. Magic Town is his claim to fame. It is a 1/6 scale city display, full of wonderful sculptured characters, and so life like! You would swear that you're peeking into windows of a real little city. Such an interesting attraction. Visit the website and see for yourself.
It's hard to say goodbye to Jim's mom, and this beautiful area, but...snow is coming, and our RV's hoses are at jeopardy! So long Colorado. Such a beautiful state...please visit it sometime!
Weather Update~~~it's eleven PM, and it's snowing outside!
