As I had mentioned in a prior post, we wanted to come back to walk around Manitou Springs some morning. Today was the day. Lots of touristy shops and restaurants and nice parks, and surprisingly lots of springs plumbed right into buildings or rocks on the side of the road. Some a bit ornate, others just look like they grew there. There were a few signs that explained the mineral content of each spring.
We walked uphill on the shady sidewalk till Kathy said she could go no more.. Then we went back down the other side of the narrow roadway, with cars and buses heading up the hill to the cog railway station, till we were done shopping and found a place to get lunch on the patio.
