Martha, my loving wife and I motored down to Colorado Springs today for lunch. The weather was beautiful, no chores to do and it was my birthday.
We rode down CO Highway 83 the metro Denver area, through the towns of Parker, Franktown, and about an hour later made it down to Colorado Springs.
Martha had been hearing of and wanting to go to this German restaurant in the city for a while, so today was the day.
The food was pretty good, we both had schnitzels and a glass of beer each. I even got a free slice of Apple Strudel with a candle on it when Martha told the waiter it was my birthday.
Luckily, no one clad in lederhosen came out singing Happy Birthday, with the strudel!
After lunch, and less than two miles away, was the America the Beautiful park. We walked around a bit after taking these pictures of the rig at the entrance to the park.
One more picture of the centerpiece for the park. The angle used below is often used by local photographers to capture sunsets and sunrises.
The ride home was a retracing of our route down, no issues and Scarlett ran great though a bit hot. Her heads' temperatures were in the low 400s. I checked with RichardM, seems those are OK temperature levels.
