We checked out early from Colorado Springs and paid a quick visit to the Cheyenne mountain zoo. We took the option of visiting the shrine. It is quiet a drive up to the shrine but the views are well worth it.

It was nice to read and see the pictures of the past. From the top of the shrine was a great over look of the valley.

Nothing particularly jumps out on this scenic visit. Great view of the city below. If you are going to visit the Cheyenne Mtn Zoo anyway, then by all means visit this site.
