    I admit that this is a bit off travel, but I know that many people are interested in music. For rentals and sales or questions, go to Rice Music at 410 South 8th Street (80905) 719.634.3717; or 4614 Austin Bluff's Parkway (80918) 719.260.6177.

    I am trying to fill in all the areas of this city, and music is important to many people. So, if you're on a road trip, stop by Rice Music. 1.800.444.RICE. It's a great place for music lovers to visit!

    I don't really know what to say about this place, because there really isn't anything to do, but Colorado College campus. Email me if you want to visit and I'll show you around! It's not a bad campus, despite the glass and urban/residential setting. Some of the architecture and buildings are neat. It's not a bad school either, especially if you are liberal. I tend more towards conservative, thus being disliked by many. Oh well. Personally, if you happen to be thinking of sending a kid here, don't. If you want to know why, email me. It's too detailed for this page. But, come visit if you like!

    This is my room!!!

    There is a little restaurant on Weber, right before it crosses (going north) Jackson, then dead-ends. It is called the 'Diner' and has good BBQ and other sandwiches, not to mention ice-cream!!!!! Weber is just west of Nevada Ave. There is a Safeway and a bunch of other stores in the Bon Center (which is the back drop for the Diner. Not beautiful, but good enough. Just for locational reasons: East to West.

    There are many bike trails around COS. One is in Palmer Park, but it's more offroad. The others, like Monument Creek Trail as smooth gravel trails that extend for quite a ways. The T-Gap Trail (Templeton Gap Trail) extends north-south, basically parallel to the Monument Creek Trail, but is paved for much of the way. I used part of that trail to bike to work every day in the Spring of 2001.

    Mueller State Park south of Divide on SH 67 offers great camping, day hikes, picnic areas, and cross country skiing. Across Hwy 67 and 1/2 mile south is National Forest Access to the Crags on the backside of Pikes Peak. The Crags can be reached in 45 minutes to 1 hour by a beatiful hike. Just below the trailhead is an overnight camping area.

    The place where my car broke down. Its called Helen Hunt Jackson falls. It is by Seven Falls. You go into the mountain for about 3 miles then there it is. You go up the steps to see the fall. There is more steps up. You take those and after awhile, you see another fall. Its not as big as Helen fall but its still pretty. You can look out to the city and see it all. As soon as I get my pictures developed I will put them on here.

    Colorado Springs has many churches. I think it is just one of the features of small towns. Also it is the center of famous religious organization Focus on the Family.

    This is where the traffic is low. Stay north! That's Colorado Avenue and Cheyenne Mountain in the background.

    Take a balloon flight around the city! For about $100 take a one hour ride. Or get married in the air!
