Colorado Springs, Colorado

Season 5, Episode 6 of 8

Colorado Springs is branding itself "Olympic City USA". Kicking off her visit with that theme, Samantha explores the interactive US Olympic & Paralympic Museum with Paralympian and Silver-Medal Winner John Register, where she competes in various Olympic sports and learns about John's personal story. At the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center, Samantha meets Founder Darlene Kobobel and interacts with Mexican Grey Wolves, and discusses the Centers' mission of providing a home to Mexican Grey Wolves and Swift Foxes. From there, Samantha samples Chef Brother Love's creative take on dumplings at his new concept restaurant, Lucky Dumpling. Taking a hike, Samantha explores Garden of the Gods, one of the most incredible geological wonders of the world, with Geologist, Jay Temple. At Atrevida Beer Co., Samantha hangs with "Bold, Daring, Audacious" Head Brewer Jess Fierro, the first Latina Brewery Owner and Head Brewer in Colorado. Their motto: "Diversity, it's on tap!" Samantha returns to an old favorite grand hotel, The Broadmoor, where she secretly replaces her photo on their Wall of Fame with an updated portrait. In Manitou Springs, Samantha visits the famous mineral springs and stops off at the Colorado Ski Furniture shop, who repurpose old skis and snow boards into quality hand-crafted furniture. No visit to Colorado Springs is complete without visiting Pikes Peak "America's Mountain". Samantha rides the Cog Railway to the summit of Pikes Peak, and takes in the magnificent views at 14,115 feet above sea level.
