I love Colorado Springs, too. It will always be home to me because I was born there and lived the first 35 years of my life there.

But it has changed and become so large I hardly know it anymore. Pikes Peak is always the same, though.

Darlene, I can hardly believe how much this city has grown, its a little hard to handle sometimes but you are right, Pikes Peak is always the same :)

I was so touched by your answers. Especially the Chatty Cathy tragic but sweet. Of course, your dad is your hero! And you make me very much want to see the Broadmoor.
