Colorado Springs - Red Rock Canyon Open Space

This open space was once a quarry. Now it preserves the red rocks and the natural area surrounding it. Several trails criss-cross through this area, some taking you through the old quarry itself and several of the buildings. We didn't have a map with trail names on it, so it was kind of a guessing game to see if we could make it back to the car by lunch. Especially since they had completed several trails that appeared on our map as "proposed". Would've been a good area to bike as well. If you look closely at the picture here on your right, you can see Andy sitting at the top of this jutting red rock.

And, here's Pikes Peak in the background again. You just have to laugh at the fact that they named this peak after the man who COULDN'T climb it!
