Manitou Springs is named for the natural mineral springs that flow through and under the town. There are over ten mineral fountains around town that are directly fed by the 30,000 year old aquifer underneath the city. Each font has it’s own distinct taste and the fountains are made by Colorado artists. 

Have you been to Manitou? What font is your favorite to drink from? (MIne is 7-minute)

Colorado Music

Colorado has a pretty solid music scene, and there are a lot of bands that come out of Colorado that you may already know about, and didn’t know they were from the Centennial state. Such as:

The Lumineers

One Republic

Flobots

Breathe Carolina

Claymore Disco (Who come from my county, and are very nice people)

Pretty Lights

The Fray

Now, most of these bands don’t necessarily come from El Paso county, but they still represent the Colorado in the music scene. What are some of your favorite Colorado bands, who’ve either hit it big time or are still undiscovered?

Yesterday’s word of the day was…

Free

Coloradans have a natural urge to do things in their own way. We like exploring, adventure and have a certain laissez-faire attitude when it comes to creating a image of what an El Paso county person really is, because well, they’re everything.

In regards to that, El Paso county boasts lots of opportunites for community members to find something that suits them. From business to arts to food, whatever you want, you’ll be able to find it. Coloradans are free to choose their own path and follow it, wherever it may lead.

Word of the day: Untamed

Yes, yes, yes I realize that Untamed is a synonym for Wild, but I really wasn’t thinking about this during my post yesterday, seeing as it hadn’t happened yet.

Close encounters with wildlife are pretty much a part of daily life living in Colorado. These were taken right outside my house at twilight. The nature in El Paso County and other parts of Colorado would not be complete without regular wildlife sightings like these two beautiful stags.

(Sidenote: Did any other Potterheads think of Patronuses immediately?)
