Joshua and I took a belated Anniversary trip (along with Adler) to Pueblo, Colorado this year. We got to catch up with his brother, Luke and his girlfriend, Haley (who happens to be a life-long friend of mine). They were fabulous tour guides, and we got to see some amazing things! If you are planning to visit Colorado any time soon, I am going to post all of the MUST SEE places to visit while you are there! The best part, all but one attraction was FREE!
# O.N.E. : GARDEN OF THE GODS- COLORADO SPRINGS (ABOUT 50 MIN FROM PUEBLO)

# T.W.O: BISHOPS CASTLE- Located in the San Isabel National Forest (About an hour drive from Pueblo).
This place was amazing! The castle was hand built, and is still being worked on! You can hike to the tip top on winding metal stairs! You have to be a bit of a thrill seeker for this one. It is probably one of the most daring things we have done (and we did it with an 8 month old). You get to feel like you are exploring a secret all on your own. No tour guides, and you get to go wherever you are brave enough to venture to. This was an excursion to remember. Here is the link to the official website.
#T.H.R.E.E.: The Royal Gorge Bridge- Located near Canon City
This is the only attraction we had to pay for! Your admission includes a ridge across the gorge in gondolas! You can also pay extra to zip line, which we opted out of. The gondolas are about the same thing, you are just enclosed! You can find out more at their website here.
