Road trip from Dallas to Colorado Springs at Thanksgiving. Good or bad time to go?
How is the weather that time of year? Will we need special clothing/shoes? Will there be snow?
Help us with our Itinerary. Fill in open spots or rearrange.
~Wed. Nov 21: Stop at Royal Gorge on our way in around 1:00 pm. Then on to the hotel in Manitou Springs (Travel Lodge Ore Mill Rd) Anyone stayed there recently?
~Thanksgiving Day Nov. 22: Pikes Peak. Will it be crowded. Drive or Cog? How long will we spend there?
~Friday Nov. 23 (last day): Garden of the Gods.
Other things we might like to do while there :
An easy hike (where, when?)
Colorado Springs Ghost Town Museum? Cost?
Red Rock Canyon? Cost?
Helen Hunt falls?
Cave of the Winds? Do we have to take a tour or can we go it alone? Cost?
What is "Tasting the Mineral Springs"? Where?
Thanks for your help.
