Colorado Springs Getaway Felix Wong

“I really need to get away,” said Leah upon proposing a 2.5-day camping trip to the Colorado Springs area this Memorial Day Weekend.

So Leah, Faith and I hopped in the car and did a little weekend vacation—almost something of a “staycation” since the Springs is just a two-hour drive south of Fort Collins—and visited a bunch of sites. Happily, our friend Tia (who currently lives down there) was able to join us on one of those days.

Since I have too much work to do there won’t be a full write-up for this little trip, but below are links to photos I quickly uploaded of the places we visited.
