This was our third stay here and it gets better each time. We stayed in the first floor suite with a patio/balcony overlooking the river. Friendly, clean, welcoming, warm, comfortable and very good value for money. What more can anyone want; oh, yes, it is in Manitou Springs which is such a friendly, attractive place to stay.

This morning we get up early and drive over to Manitou Springs to ride the cog train to the top of Pikes Peak. We take the first train out that morning, but still the train is full.

It is a 90 minute train ride one way. It is a beautiful ride up even though we are riding backwards. The ...
... seem to have a very natural habitat.
We watched the feeding of the grey wolves, which was interesting. They seemed to be okay.
Also I fed a giraffe. It was hot and many of the animals were hiding in shady spots. But we enjoyed the visit because we enjoyed Bill's company and it was not a BAD zoo.
Although, even the snakes, which I am not a fan of, I felt sorry for. Not even enough room in their glass boxes to stretch to full size ...
... You buy a ticket for dinner (beef, steak, or chicken) and get to watch them sing cowboy songs. We use to live in the area, so I've seen this over a hundred times. You get there early to explore the "Town" an old wild west style area of shops and food tasting. I wandered around through the old stores, taking note that a lot of them had been shuttered which was sad. I climbed up to the top of the lookout and enjoyed the view. I also sampled their homemade fire ...
