Pikes Peak or Bust, the Alien has Landed

Yesterday, three generations of my family finally made it to the top of Pikes Peak. We drove, which was an experience in itself. There were no guard rails and numerous switchbacks on the narrow, very winding gravel and sometimes paved road. It was lovely and cool at the top. The views were amazing. I only wish there had been more signs giving us information regarding the environment and the weather station located up there like there is on Mount Washington in New Hampshire. However, going to the top of Pikes is now crossed off all our Bucket Lists.

You should sell that pic to the Enquirer. They would probably publish it.

Good on you guys! I liked the journey but the actual summit didn't impress me all that much.
