Johnny Lawless

Colorado Springs

Rolling hills and vast plains.

Invigorating mountain air.

Mighty Pikes Peak towering above.

Gentle streams and swift rivers.

All making a nestled paradise.

This place that is my home.

 

A vibrant and healthy community.

Good natured people abound.

Nostalgic Old West vibes.

Downtown glows with prosperity.

Old Town and Manitou thrive.

This place of my pleasant dreams.

 

Luscious, captivating scenery.

Spectacularly magnificent vistas.

Stunning crystal blue skies.

Minimal overcast, gloomy days.

Phenomenal natural splendor.

This place I forever love.

      Thank you.

      My favorite bicycle ride goes to Manitou; the roads are absolutely gorgeous. The town is more diverse than any other around here.

            That's a terrible pic. taken with a planned obsolete phone. I think I have a real camera, somewhere, maybe. Can your Guinea Pigs sniff it out for me next time you're over?!

              This is a piece of serenity. Makes me long for a place that I do not know. Beautiful, Lawless.

              • Johnny Lawless

                Thank you Santi.

                I have been in Colorado for 32 years. The breathtaking wonders never seem to cease.

                My son and I road our bicycles up Pikes Peak a few months ago and saw a rainbow at eye level in a canyon. It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen, and I'm no Spring Chicken!

                Be well,
                Lawless
