The journey West continues. Today, we're at Pike's Peak and Garden of the Gods.
|When we started our trip, the temperature was in the 70's|
|I love that name!|
|Someone actually lives halfway up the mountain. They maintain the tracks or something. Their "driveway" is 20 miles long, and grocery shopping day is a seven hour ordeal!|
|The temperature was a balmy 34 degrees! Altitude: 14,110 feet. I was definitely feeling it after only about 15 minutes.|
