The perfect place for many attractions

Manitou Springs is just a little place west of Colorado Springs but a perfect starting point to visit Cliff Dwellings, Garden of the Gods, Caves of Winds, Seven Falls and of course Pikes Peak.
The village itself is pretty small with some nice stores especially for Indian crafts

Pikes Peak , 13 110 Ft

Take the world's highest Cog Railway ($ 26.-- per person) which takes 1 1/4 hour or drive the 19 miles up to the summit through five different life zones.
Be aware of the altitude up there but enjoy the panoramic views of Colorado Springs, Garden of the Gods and the snow-capped Rocky Mountains

Manitou Cliff Dwellings

These Cliff Dwellings are rather small. An interesting place to learn the architecture of the ancient Anasazi. Natives perform dances.

    Remo is looking very relaxed in Utah but funny that you had to go so far to ride a train from Zermatt!
