Air Canada talked about us!

I don't fly nearly enough to know what this means exactly, but as a sometimes-traveler — who needs all the distraction she can get, and that includes a spin through SkyMall — it seems pretty cool to get some love from enRoute, the Air Canada publication.

The May 29 issue's quick trip section listed five ways to "strike gold" in the Springs, including trips to Ivywild School and Summit at the Broadmoor, climbing in Garden of the Gods, a stay at the Mining Exchange and for the culture part, a visit to Range Gallery in Old Colorado City.

"A real camera fanatic — she owns 50 of them — Kathleen McFadden captures the landscapes of the American West with sensitivity and humour. On the charcoal-grey walls of her gallery in über-Western Old Colorado City, she exhibits oversize images of broken-down trailers, livestock corrals, solitary motels and more local iconography."

A sidebar discusses some of the mineral springs in Manitou (though it reads like those are in Colorado Springs as well); and did you know, you can "pamper" your muscles and kidneys with the iron- and potassium-rich waters of Iron Springs Geyser? 

And not a weed/conservative yahoo/evangelical hotbed reference in sight.
