Our time in Colorado Springs was fantastic and focused on two activities: visiting Garden of the Gods and reuniting with a friend. Each of those activities involved a solid RVer parking moment.
- Ayo couchsurfed with a really great woman named Moni a few years ago. We met up for a 9:00 AM(!) breakfast at a bagel place. Parking? We overnighted about 300′ away, so our bed –> bagel shop time was about five minutes.
- We spent two days at Garden of the Gods and were hoping to find a parking spot to overnight near the park. Well, we didn’t have to look far. At around 8 PM, they locked us in at the visitor center parking lot! Our solution to being locked in: make some Indian food, watch a TV show and go to sleep in the same bed as always – in the park.
Garden of the Gods was wonderful. We spent one day exploring the grounds and took another day for climbing, hiking, relaxing, and taking the scooter for a joy ride. Ayo even joined me for a few climbs and put me to shame with three quick and composed barefoot ascents. She’s a natural!
In the coming days we’ll be heading north into Rocky Mountain National Park. I’m not sure what our connectivity will be like there, but you’ll hear from us eventually. ‘Til then!
