Since my husband has a few days off, we are definitely taking advantage of our free time together and trying to explore Colorado Springs as much as we can. Yesterday, we drove up to Pikes Peak and our breaths were taken away by the amazing views. Our breaths were also (literally) taken away by the major change in elevation – 14,110 feet, to be exact. Upon arriving to the very top and walking around and climbing on rocks, we noticed we were out of breath and little dizzy. However, the small “sickness” didn’t stop us from throughouly enjoying the wonderful 360 degree views. Roxy seemed to have a blast too! We were worried she’d get sick due to the change of air, but she did better than we did, including almost jumping over a 5 foot rock wall (behind the wall was a rocky hill down the mountain; you can imagine how scared we were seeing her jump up on the wall). We assume she wanted to check out the views too, no matter what it took.
Below are a few photos during from trip. We were so amazed by the vivid colors of the trees and also the Big Foot sign! I hope you will enjoy browsing through these images as much as I enjoyed taking them and feel free to comment!
