Manitou Lake and Deckers

We recently took a little spur of the moment drive up to Manitou Lake.

It only took about 40 minutes to get there and the drive was very scenic.

Here’s another link.

It was $5 to park but there are restrooms and the place is well maintained.

We just laid on a blanket and read awhile. It was pretty relaxing.

Anyone know of any other nearby lakes to Colorado Springs?

After that we drove a little ways up the road to the Deckers area. We’ve been there before, of course, but like all fishermen, Mike is on an eternal quest for the perfect fishing spot. Here’s where we went last time.

We’re going camping in Deckers in a couple weeks so I’ll keep you posted on the fishing story.
