Our next stop after Pike’s Peak was Rainbow Falls. Or, as the locals call it, Graffiti Falls. Again, this is something I’d like to see again on a sunny day, but until then, enjoy the slightly grayer version:

After the Garden of the Gods, David took us up to Pike’s Peak, which I’d been wanting to visit for years. As you saw from my previous post, it was overcast and drizzly that day, but once we got above the cloud cover, the view was amazing:
We only got about 3/4 of the way up the mountain; the rest of the road was still snowed in. Still, I wasn’t complaining:
Day 2 started off much like Day 1: getting up before the crack of dawn – and me promptly falling back asleep in the car. The scenery was much like the day before, ie. mainly desert, but gorgeous.
We stopped in Castle Valley for a bit, and I’m pretty sure I was drooling over the scenery:
A couple of hours later, we crossed over into Colorado:
And were promptly greeted by a thunderstorm, then hail, and as we made our way into the mountains, snow!
Craziness. Needless to say, we were very happy to get to Colorado Springs.
