My best friend just moved to Colorado Springs. I now have no excuse not to visit Colorado! (And with scenery like that in this photo, I need to get myself out there.)

Bob,

You're right - no more excuses! There is so much hiking to enjoy right near COS (Colorado Springs). But drive 2 hours and you'll be in heaven. The above scene can be enjoyed by taking only about a 2 hour drive from COS.

...then again, my cabin in only about 40 mins from this trailhead...hehehe.

Make your travel plans!

Hey Rat,

I am ashamed to say I have no earthly idea. I'm a fool when it comes to geology. Sorry!
