I went, I saw, I conquered!! Manitou Springs Incline HIke with pics!!

Monday, April 06, 2015

Hello Sparkers! Last week my DS(9yr old) was home for spring break so the hubs and I decided to take him on a quick overnight mini trip to Colorado Springs which is about 1 1/2 hr drive South. DH couldn't take more than a day off from work so it had to be a short trip :( but it was so much fun. We checked into our hotel and went for a swim, went out to dinner although it was pretty late! I love love love spending time with my little family! The next morning we thought we would drive down to Manitou Springs to hike "the incline" and play at the nickel arcades. The hike was INTENSE if you have done this hike before you know exactly what I mean. This hike really tested my endurance and focus. As I type this almost a week later my legs are still a little sore!! But the view was totally worth it

After the hike we played at the arcades for a little while and then went and had dinner. My sons' choice Sushi That kid looooves sushi. After that we headed home. It was such a memorable little trip, I felt accomplished on making the hike and extremely proud of my guys (hubs and son) for their endurance as well.

If you can visit Manitou Springs DO IT!! If you can conquer the incline DO IT!!! Take full advantage of your able body!! Take your family outdoors, you will be glad you did. emoticon
