With visitors in for the weekend, we tried to find somewhere new and adventurous to spend our Sunday afternoon. While neither D nor I had heard of the “Garden of the Gods”, we both assumed it was named for a reason. Pictures of jagged red rocks and the word “Free” had us convinced. And we went…
After stopping in the Visitor’s Center for some directions, brochures and maps, our car found the parking lot and we found the trails.
Traveling north, through the Garden, Pike’s Peak covers the horizon. Guess what covers Pike’s Peak? A road, to the top.
Unfortunately, this one comes with a price tag. But when in Colorado, peak one of the 14-ers, right? That’s what we did!
After climbing up to 14,110, we braved the 13* summit temperature for a few pictures and a few moments in awe. An adventure we won’t soon forget!
