We went to the top of Pikes Peak via the Cog Railway. It’s a little pricey, but worth it I think. The boys had a fabulous time. You are supposed to drink lots of water because of the possible altitude sickness. The second picture is of my oldest having to “go” in one of our cups because he couldn’t hold all of the water he drank. It’s a long train ride!
The next day, we went to the Manitou Springs Cliff Dwellings. They are quite small compared to Mesa Verde, which has the largest cliff dwellings in the US, but they are perfect for five year olds.
