Right in the Middle

of Colorado Springs is Palmer Park. It was named after Col. Palmer, who was the founder of Colorado Springs and donated this land to the city in 1902. There are 25 miles of hiking/biking/equestrian trails and pretty views of the mountains and the bluffs that run through the park. The odd thing is, you'd never know this beautiful park is here as it just seems nestled into surrounding neighborhoods. It is beautiful, believe me! We spent a couple of hours hiking here this afternoon. The weather was perfect - upper 70s, light breeze, and not a cloud in the sky. All the kids are becoming quite the hikers - including MAD and MED who did a cool 3 miles on an intermediate trail without batting an eye.
