Guaranteed this will be more fun than the movie Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. Please join us on an Saturday, June 2 for an afternoon drive down to Bishop’s Castle. We will depart at 1:00 PM from 1st and Main Town Center (north parking lot at the Holiday Inn Express, 3431 Cinema Point) in Colorado Springs.
