Pike’s Peak Photo Blog

My aunt Joan and I went to Pike’s Peak in Colorado last month. It was a WONDERFUL day full of wandering around and freezing our butts off.

Joan and I hopped onto the Cog Train and road to the top of the mountain. Upon our arrival, we were welcomed by clear blue skies and large mounds of snow. I have heard the story all my life of when my dad and Uncle Trey went to the top of Pike’s Peak with my grand parents. They were in shorts and a t-shirt and did nothing but shiver. Joan (their older sister) and I, having heard this story a million times, made sure to pack warmly. As you will see in the pictures, she and I wore thick jackets and scarves.

If you ever get the chance, do go to Pike’s Peak. It’s about an hour (ish) south of Denver right outside of Colorado Springs. Aside from Pike’s Peak, there are a lot of fun things to do. Just make sure you book the cog train ride, as it tends to sell out.

    lovely pics you have here . i am planning to visit pikes peak during this thanksgiving. So after reaching the top on cogs train, what are the other interesting stuff to do there ?

  2. There’s really not a whole lot to do up top. There is a gift shop and cafe, but no activities. I am a lover of great views though. It’s magnificent to just sit and look over the vast space πŸ™‚
