Colorado State Directors
The state rally was held in Colorado Springs at the KOA Holiday starting September 15-19. We enjoyed great weather with highs of 75-80’s and overnight lows of 50 degrees.
There are so many things to do and see in the Colorado Springs area. We visited the new Olympic Museum with its three stories of old Olympic memorabilia and interactive displays for those with Olympic aspirations. Saturday, we toured the Cave of the Winds. Not sure which was better, the tour and history of the cave or the magnificent views from the entry point! Spent Sunday evening dining chuck wagon style at the Flying W Ranch. We enjoyed plentiful amounts of food and had great entertainment after dinner. Some in the group visited Pikes Peak via the cog railway while others went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo on Sunday.
With the great weather we were also able to gather around a fireplace in the evening and share our experiences and be entertained by the many kids on a hay wagon and their bikes.
As I write this, we have been reminded it is fall and winter is coming soon with our first measurable snow plus enough of the white stuff in the mountains for several of the ski areas to open. Hope all had a great summer and fall. Now we can all plan for next year’s rallies and trips.
