After our wonderful trip to Garden of the Gods, we stopped at the apartment to pick up our jackets and then had time for a little window of time to grab a quick lunch. We didn't think a restaurant would give us enough time, so we stopped at Patsy's for junk food like soft pretzels, nachos, chili dogs, and fries! It was really quite tasty!!
|The Cog Train was so quaint! Very Americana...we looked around, |
got our tickets, and waited on our train to arrive!
|There were a lot of aspen trees on the mountain...one interesting fact that we |
learned is that every single aspen tree there shared ONE root system --
so technically, it was all one tree! I had no idea!
|Blaise and Kiki near the top of the summit -- it started to get really chilly |
at this point and we all started to bundle up!
|When we finally made it to the top, we had about 40 minutes to spend taking |
in the view. Oh the view!! The photos just don't do it any justice. It was phenomenal
how far you can see. And how glorious the site is!
|I captured this gorgeous cloudscape on top of Pikes Peak - it was breathtaking!!!|
|Our foursome on the journey down the mountain...what an experience! It was |
definitely worth the money. I'll never forget that view!!
