It was like an intense scene from a mystery. The couple, husband and wife, were wandering around in a sub-terrain parking lot. They searched for their car, in the dimly lit parking garage. When they had pulled into the structure it was daylight. It was long past daylight when they returned.

They had seized the opportunity to park there because parking around the Pikes Peak Center can be difficult anytime, let alone when a concert is on the schedule. The concert was a joint effort of the Colorado Philharmonic Orchestra and a group called Landslide. Landslide plays Fleetwood Mac songs.

The structure advertised 24-hour a day parking. The man, driving the vehicle, had pulled in with past memories of Pikes Peak Center parking still alive in his memory. As they got to the bottom of the ramp, where a parking ticket could be extracted from a machine, a giant steel door blocked any unauthorized entrance.

All parking garages can seem maze-like, but eventually the couple ended up in an elevator that took them to street level. They noted they got on the elevator at a level designated as G1 on the series of buttons. They noted a small bistro on the floor where they exited and, not really familiar with downtown Colorado Springs, they paid attention to where they would have to return.
