Friday, July 4, continued

In the afternoon, we went to Rock Ledge Park, just adjacent to the Garden of the gods park, for historical reenactments. Here are some of the things we saw:











Making shot.













Making beans, making fire, making bread and making music.



Is that Patty with Abraham Lincoln?






Later that evening, we found a spot on a hill in town and saw fireworks from several locations from miles around.


Monday, July 7 to Thursday, July 10  

Sower ladies at work cleaning at the castle:











These ladies were working hard, and were glad for a change not to have to be making beds all morning.









Friday, July 11

Four of us Sowers with the big trucks helped one of the Sower's daughter and son-in-law move from one side of Colorado Springs to another.

Saturday, July 12

Car show at the Garden of the gods paring lot.  Ed took 23 pictures; here are a few of them....








Do you see Patty?








If that wasn't enough excitement for the day, we decided earlier in the day to run up to Rampart lake and down the Rampart Range Road (unpaved) to the Garden of the gods.  It was quite a trip.  See the next page.
