Prairies, Mountains and Red Rocks

In June I traveled with a local group on a motorcoach tour to Colorado Springs. On the way we visited museums and enjoyed the scenery.

Old Cowtown Museum, Wichita, Kansas
Recreated western town complete with stagecoach rides.
A step back in time.


Prairie Museum of Art and History, Colby, Kansas
The museum houses numerous collections as well as historic buildings from the area.
Our group really enjoyed the Prairie Museum.
I would recommend stopping if you are in the area.

The Cooper Barn was moved 19 miles to the museum site.
Fascinating video of the move in the museum.

Dirt house

We had a full day guided tour of Colorado Springs.
The US Olympic Training Center
Colorado Springs


US Air Force Academy
Beautiful inside and out.
Do put this on your list to visit.

Rocky Mountain High

Garden of the Gods

After spending the morning in Manitou Springs we stopped at the visitor center for Garden of the Gods. Fascinating movie about the creation of the red rocks with a time travel theme. After the movie we boarded the motorcoach and drove through the Garden.

The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park

Gondolas, bridges, zip lines...
Time for everyone to be a kid again!

Smoky Hill Museum, Salina, Kansas

Until next time...
