While in Colorado Springs several weeks ago we took a couple hours to explore “The Broadmoor”, a historic and luxurious resort. The resort has eighteen restaurants, 3 eighteen hole golf courses, 25 retail shops, several pools, fitness center, full service spa, 779 hotel rooms, conference buildings, hiking trails, several large lakes etc. etc. A dismantled English pub was even purchased and reassembled within the resort. The original 3000 acres were first purchased by Spencer Penrose in 1916 to begin building what he titled the “Grand Dame of the Rockies” to be patterned after luxurious European hotels. Additional buildings and property have been built and acquired through the years.
While walking along the path near one of the lakes we saw several gaggles of geese. The babies were so cute I couldn’t resist taking several pictures of them. Would have loved to crop this one a bit but, not bad for straight out of the camera.
