Just about every day someone asks, "what is there to do around here?" That is whole reason for this site. We want to share our personal day trips, or, as we call them - Journals, with you. We will take you near and far, populated and not, low country and to the peak. Choose one and enjoy your day around the Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs, and Pikes Peak region. Please take a moment too after your trip to share in your experience!
