(COLORADO SPRINGS) — New Year’s Eve (NYE) is just around the corner and Colorado Springs has plenty to offer for the young and the old.

Went out and took some photos of the 9 p.m. showing of the fireworks on Pikes Peak this year 🙂 The low lying clouds made it a pretty unique site to see! This photo was taken from Woodland Park, while there we happened to see a decent sized herd of Elk right in front of us. It was a very spectacular end to a rough year! / Megan Nicole Hagar - June Blooms Photography
