We had been excited to visit the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo since we saw the photos of their giraffes. Expectations were meant and exceeded. It was a very nice zoo but the giraffes were simply magical. With the elevated platforms visitors are eye-to-eye with the giants and they are just soooo amazing.

We decided to get up early to see sunrise at Garden of the Gods. The clouds and lighting weren’t great but it was still a lovely sight. Then we stopped for a quick Starbuck’s latte before heading to the zoo.
We were able to make a quick visit to the Garden of the Gods park before dinner.
We began our week-long Colorado adventure this morning; leaving a dreary SeaTac. It was quite a surprise when we stepped out of the Denver terminal into temperature in the mid 70s.
What a slog it’s been. Since getting down to 11.6 in September of 2014, my handicap had pretty much trended upward, hitting 16.6 in September of last year and was still at 16.4 in mid May. Maybe the persistent lessons are actually helping. Due to the never-ending winter of 2016-2017, I ended of playing way fewer rounds that I had planned this year. I’m going to be curious to see what spring 2018 brings.
