Early that evening Sofia’s friend Miriam and her family came in our hotel and we went to Seven Falls but George was so tired driving so he decided to stay in the hotel. Seven Falls is so beautiful at night because of the computerized lightings. The water changed into different colors. It’s so cool! There were a bunch of people there and there was a cultural show but we were so busy taking pictures of the water falls that I didn’t have time to watch them. We rode the mountain elevator and went to Eagle’s Nest. At the top we could see the falls. What a view! Miriam took us to Denny’s for supper that night but I was so tired and sleepy that I didn’t have the appetite to eat my food.
The next day we went to Garden of the Gods. Oh my! the view is spectacular. I felt so amazed seeing the rocky mountains so high. Only God can make those magnificent views. I feasted my eyes seeing the beauty of nature while we were hiking in the Garden of the Gods. I’m a nature lover and I really love sight-seeing. We can only say "Wow! What a view!"
We spent half day there and after we ate our lunch, off we went to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. We spent the whole day just hiking and walking. Cheyenne Mountain Zoo lives up to its name. The zoo is really in the mountainous area and this is America’s only mountain zoo. So we have to walk up and down the mountain zoo just to see those animals. This zoo has the the world-famous giraffe herd, the largest of any zoo. On top of the mountain zoo, you can see the breathtaking mountain scenery of the zoo and also Colorado Springs.

At the end of the day my feet got tired. Then Ashley whom I met at Friendster called and she decided to meet us personally the next day before we leave. She and her hubby Scott came to our hotel and then took us to breakfast at IHop restaurant. I was so glad to see Ashley and her hubby. They are nice and good-looking couple and we enjoyed talking with them. My only regret is we only had a short time to be with each other because we have to leave early and also Ashley had to work at 11:00 AM that day. After we ate our breakfast, Scott and Ashley took us to a scenic overlook view in Colorado Springs wherein we could see the Pikes Peak, Cheyenne Mountain and the US Airforce Academy. We took some souvenir photos with them and after that we said goodbye to each other and we headed back home. We really enjoyed our short stay there and we had fun.
