There’s nothing like a soft, old fashioned sugar cookie. My wife and I were passing an Amish farm while traveling through central Ohio one day when we spotted some Amish children selling cookies alongside the road. They were absolutely delicious, and the children were so happy and excited that we stopped. Our local businesses right here in Colorado Springs are a lot like that. They put out their very best everyday for us to enjoy, and they are happy and excited when we stop in and give them the opportunity to share with us. We have a wonderful variety of local businesses. Take time to explore. Take time to enjoy. Discover more at DiscoverCOS.com.
Enjoy the taste of Italy at one of Colorado Springs newest family owned restaurants. The Salamino pizza was magnifico and made in a beautiful wood-fired oven imported from Naples. The Cannoli was delicious too, and Brielle was very friendly and helpful in the ordering process. They have a clean and comfortable dining room with an open kitchen and a great patio with an awesome view of the mountains. The restaurant is located in the new Highlands shopping area just east of the Focus on the Family campus off Briargate Parkway.

The heat is on at Juniper Valley Ranch with their Thursday night hot and spicy chicken! I was wondering why it was so hazy in town today. This place has always been one our favorites.

We hiked all the way to the top of the falls today. Be sure to opt for the trolley ride that takes you back and forth between the entrance gate and the base of the falls. It’s a pretty strenuous walk (for some) uphill through the canyon if you don’t, and definitely worth the extra $2. It’s also important to note that the FREE park and ride shuttle service to Seven Falls has been relocated to 1045 Lower Gold Camp Road. Remember, you can’t park directly AT the falls.
