I realized that besides traveling internationally at least once a year, I occasionally have weekend adventures and thought perhaps I should incorporate some of these little adventures into my travel journal. I like to discover new restaurants, small cities, and sights in my state of Colorado that I can travel to in a weekend. Actually within an hour or two of my home. This weekend I literally adventured into a small hole-in-the-wall (actually mountain) – a cave. Adventured in Cave of the Winds just west of Manitou Springs, Colorado. About an hour tour today, they also have a lantern tour, but we wanted to see the cave. The lantern tour literally uses lanterns to explore the caves and listen to ghost stories. With only lanterns, the caves are pretty dark and you really can’t see the formations much. Cost for the tour is $20 per adult.
