I love Colorado Springs. My son and his family live there and I visit four times each year. I don't like winter, but in the summer we can hike and visit the zoos. Their neighborhood is at the bottom of a mountain, so there is plenty of wildlife.
I love the Garden of the Gods. And I kissed a giraffe at the zoo! Both so much fun.
