Garden of the Gods

Brian and I really wanted to check out Garden of the Gods because he hadn’t been there since he was a child and I hadn’t been there since the early 90s when my family first moved to the US. The weather made it a little tricky though because of the rainy weather forecast. We made it to the Garden of the Gods Trading Post just as the rain started to really come down.

We decided to wait it out by having lunch at the Trading Post. We were sure that the rain would eventually stop and the weather had pretty much been like that all weekend. It was start and stop throughout the day but it was really coming down hard right at that moment.

We shared chicken tenders and frieds, which were just so-so, and I got Brian a big truffle for dessert. For myself, I got a double scoop ice cream in a chocolate dipped waffle cone. I got one scoop of French silk ice cream and a scoop of cappuccino ice cream – something for me and something for Brian because I was sure he would want to share my ice cream with me.

Brian enjoyed his milk overload truffle.

I thoroughly enjoyed my ice cream. The best part of the ice cream was my chocolate-dipped waffle cone which actually had chocolate coating all over the inside. Sometimes on these dipped waffle cones the chocolate is only at the top part. This one had chocolate all over the inside. It was so good!

We ventured out once it stopped raining. I was amazed at how many people were out despite the weather.

We just went to the popular sights so maybe that’s why there were so many people around. We didn’t bring any hiking shoes, and Brian isn’t much of a hiker, and I really didn’t want to go hiking if the ground was wet so there was no hiking in the cards for us this trip.

We just went out and took some selfies. That’s pretty much the extend of our Garden of the Gods adventure. I’m sure there will be other tournaments in the area and we will be more prepared when we return. We will have to set aside time for hiking. Brian won’t be thrilled but I will make him go hiking with me next time.

Until then. GNG.
