Dear Memory Bank, Babymoon Days 3 and 4

We enjoyed coffee Sunday morning, packed up, and went on a gorgeous drive through Boreas Pass. There was about a mile corridor of aspens that were gorgeous!

After our drive, we had another round of crepes before heading to Colorado Springs. We stopped just outside of Colorado Springs at Garden of the Gods. We did the short Siamese Twins hike, and took some neat pictures, then stopped at the Visitor's Centers for more pictures before heading to our hotel.
I have always wanted to stay at The Broadmoor. It was as gorgeous as I imagined, and everything about it was 5 star. We were definitely out of our element, but it was fun to enjoy for 24 hours! The grounds were immaculate, we went out on the paddle boats, we ate at the only reasonable restaurant (The Golden Bee), we sat by the firepit, and then enjoyed an evening in.
We got up, had coffee and read outside before checking out. We had a yummy brunch at the Marigold Cafe & Bakery (yum!), then got on the road. We planned to visit the Airforce Academy, but the weather turned sour so we decided we'd do that another time.

It was a really nice getaway. As a couple who has gone a ton in our 9 years, it's hard to believe that's the last time to get away and only have Scout (our Pomeranian) to worry about! We're looking forward to returning home to more than dirty laundry and a happy pet though!
