Colorado Springs Streets - A-Z {Cache La Poudre}

Last Saturday, we set out as a family to tour Cache La Poudre.

It is a fun street to say.

It is downtownish and is fairly short.

I was super hungry so we went to try out this deli, Wooglin's, which is right off Cache La Poudre to give us energy for the journey.

It was in a neat building. I liked the grates over the skylights and the hanging plants.

I got an Italian sandwich on house made walnut wheat bread and Adrian got a green chile burger.

David mostly ate chips but don't worry he'd already had something to eat at home too.

We also got a slice of the raspberry cheesecake before leaving and the girl who took Adrian's order told him she was jealous of him getting to eat that cheesecake.

We took two cameras in.

We like to do stuff like that.

Adrian snapped a photo of me capturing this play of shadow and sunlight.

And I also got a fun pic of my cute guys.

Look at how beautiful the sky was that day!

People were out enjoying the fall weather on bikes, on foot, etc.

Great leaf shot taken by my husband.

As we walked in the direction of Cache La Poudre we saw the sign for this La'au's Taco Shop.

The sign looks fun to me and it is right by the Colorado College campus so I'll bet it's a cool place.

Look at this gorgeous view on the western end of Cache La Poudre.

There are great views of the mountains and fall color as you look down Cache La Poudre.

On the campus of the college there are these really neat statues made of saplings.

David had a great time going through the tunnels!

Cache La Poudre crosses another fun "C" street, Cascade.

see that bridge up there?

We've ridden over it on our bike!

this type of house ornamentation is fairly common here in the older homes

house with a turret and I *love* the trim above the window!

nearing the end where it turns into Yampa on the eastern side

Aren't those flowers so fun?!

They make me happy.

What's your favorite "C" street in your neck of the woods?

Some of our best friends live on Cache la Poudre! I just love downtown Co Springs! GREAT PICS. And again, sorry I missed seeing you last night.

Beautiful photos on a lovely fall day. What a fun name for a street--I assume you translated it?? Wonder if there is a story behind its name!

How fun your C street is where Colorado College (2 more Cs)! And those sapling statues? Those are kind of crazy :) This is quite the project, but I do like it. You should let someone in the Chamber of Commerce know about it - great advertising for CS.

My "favorite" C street? Well, my school is on Cardinal Drive (since that's our mascot) so I guess it's my favorite these days.

Wooglin's is one of my favorite places in town. The owner, Kelvin, has become a buddy of mine and stops by my table to visit every time I go in. I *highly* recommend the turkey almond melt next time -- it's served w/cream cheese on a bagel. Killer stuff.
