Mountains and mountains and more mountains

We spent today hiking around some of the open space and parks areas in Colorado Springs.  I took a bazillion photos and don’t have time to upload them now so once again these are from our time in Grand Lake.  They were taken somewhere in Rocky Mountain National Park, not far from Grand Lake.

Our days and evenings have been so full that it’s difficult to keep up with it all.  As for the names of the peaks and/or mountains, I have a difficult time telling most of them apart, even with a map.

I am really enjoying our time here.  It’s such a beautiful place.  And it’s been fun spending time with M the Younger and Merdi.  We’ll have more time with them during the coming week once we go back to the Boulder area.

Tomorrow (today) we are taking the Cog Railway up to Pike’s Peak.  M the Younger and Merdi are going with us.  We’ll be leaving bright and early, bundled up for the cold.  The temperature difference between where we are now in Colorado Springs and the top of Pike’s Peak is about 30 degrees.  It will be chilly up there.
