I avoid going into the city because of the traffic but once there one can't ignore the beauty hidden amongst the bustling crowds and tall office buildings. This is a veiw of the old train depot, now serving as a restaurant.
This working weather vane once stood in someone's front yard until it was found to be in violation of the city zoning codes because of its height. The fire hydrant stood out because it was the only one that had vegetation growing around it. Becca asked 'what side do you think the dogs use?'
This is just one of the many pieces of art that decorate the sidewalks and medians around town. It is a two sided sofa and admirers are encouraged to sit upon it.
The balancing jester is also a working street light. The statue of the cowboy 'Hank' is dedicated to all of the individuals and organizations who make the annual Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo possible.
I am not familiar with the story behind this statue yet. It appears to be a cowboy and his son. There are so many wonderful sculptures of this caliber around town and I would love to eventually get pictures of all of them.
