    Colorado Springs, CO

    Colorado Springs reminded me a lot of Albuquerque. It's about the same size and consists mostly of the same kind of postwar auto-oriented sprawl. Many parts of both cities feel virtually identical. The first few pictures here are a good example.

    Did you get to Garden of Gods, Broadmoor, ?
    I am guessing not because no pictures.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I'd been to Garden of the Gods before (also Pike's Peak), so no, not on this trip. I went by Broadmoor, but didn't stop to take any pictures.

    I am surprised at the ample tree lawn in photos 2 & 3 for such a new development.

    You kind of went a little different haven't been in Boulder (I assume on the same trip). The Springs always carried more of a stigma to me. I don't go there often, but with such a large military presense and the HQ for Focus on the Family; it is about as far from Boulder as you can get.

    Still your photos caught a glimpse of the Springs that this Colorado native has never seen. Picturesque town for sure.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
