Road Tripping - Garden of the Gods and Paint Mines

  • Jun 21, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

I plan to ride my motorcycle and hope other riders will join me. However, feel free to drive your cars as well.

We will take 83 south to Colorado Springs and then head over to the Garden of the Gods. We will park and walk the short trails where we can enjoy the unique rock formations. 

Next, we will have lunch - restaurant to be determined. Then we will head east to see the Paint Mines. If you have never heard of them, you can read about them here - http://paintminespark.webs.com/

    Glad most of us were able to find each other. Nice to see GoG again, and nice to meet some new people.

    We are here at GOG and there are a TON of people and beautiful sun. We ended up at lot 10 and no idea how to find everyone else.

    I was at a Starbucks near Arapahoe, now at Einsteins. Think I'll just have a bagel and head home.

    Not sure if people bailed due to overcast this morning. Sounded like a few were planning to meet me at Arapahoe Crossing. I'm going to do a few laps around the shopping center in case people are lost and then head out.

  • Lila

    The Starbucks is gone! I'm over at Einstein's, in the little strip mall just north of Arapahoe Crossing. Cell is[masked] of you can't find me.

    We will meet you at GOG around 1030. Do we have a way to get in touch with you in case something comes up ?

    June 20, 2014

  • Pam

    I'll meet you at Starbucks!

    I have to cancel; my brother just reminded me tomorrow is the Gravel Grinder and I told him awhile back I'd do that with him. I hope y'all have a good time.

    Whee at GOG will you be starting at and what time do you think you will get there?

    May 22, 2014

    • Lila

      Hi Mike, I figure by the time we load up cars and bikes and head out, it will be around 10:30 when we get to GOG. As it gets closer we will coordinate with those that want to meet us there.

      We'll be meeting you there at 1030 :)

      Google has trouble finding the Starbucks at Arapahoe Crossing, so it was easier to use the AMC for the map. We are still meeting at Starbucks tomorrow morning. Who doesn't want to start the day with a cup of coffee? :-)

    Hi Lila, so would it be ok to bring my 14yo granddaughter and her friend?

    June 19, 2014

    • Lila

      Sure, that's fine.

      June 19, 2014

    Hi Everyone. Please bring some water and sunscreen for this trip. Both GOG and Paint Mines are very sun exposed. We will spend about an hour at each place and you will want to make sure you have sunscreen as you will feel the sun. Water is always nice to have on any outdoor event.
