After the Royal Gorge we headed to Colorado Springs to meet one of Patti's cousins for dinner. We decided to take a back road because we thought it would be pretty. It was very pretty along the way BUT it was so wash-boarded in places that it would shake your teeth out. I was driving down the road when I got a glimpse of something in the road so I stopped and backed up and the little fellow below was what I had seen. Of course I pulled up a little and got out and went back to pester him. It didn't take a lot to get him mad and rattling...just a few pebbles dropped on him. :)
As you can see from the other pictures it was very beautiful. It would have been so much more enjoyable if it hadn't been so rough. However, we still got to Colorado Springs in time to meet her cousin.
