Manitou Cliff Dwellings

I have wanted to visit Mesa Verde since my grandpa took the boy cousins back in the '90's, so when I saw that there were cliff dwellings near Colorado Springs, I added that to our agenda.  The kids look excited in this photo, but their enthusiasm for the destination did not match mine...

Our first two days in Colorado Springs were chilly, overcast, and rainy...
So what better time to go hide under a cliff? 
The rain limited us to indoor activities, so we also visited the GhostTown Museum...

Corinne and a bread oven...
Stella Oakley...

The girls did enjoy grinding their own corn meal at the cliff dwellings...

I enjoyed the artwork...





Corinne bellied up to the bar for a root beer...





More vacation fun to come!
