Colorado Springs, CO Oct 26-31, 2016

We've been to Colorado Springs before, but this time we were able to see more areas of the city, and we think it's a pretty nice place.  We stayed at the Elks Lodge on the north side of town.

This is part of the 22nd Annual Emma Crawford Coffin Races in Manitou Springs

Thousands of people come to watch the parade and coffin races

All sorts of unusual costumes and hearses were part of the parade

Teams of four mourners and "Emma" in the coffin race down Main Street

They even had a number of Presidential Pallbearers in the event

We spent an afternoon in downtown Colorado Springs enjoying some good food

We even had time for a hike at Palmer Park on the edge of town
