Chris' trip to Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs

Last chance to turn back!

Snow on top of Pikes Peak

Notice the guard rails (or lack of!)
The first half of the trip (over 19 mile drive to the top) is paved. After that it's a dirt road to the top that zigzags back and forth.

more snow

more snow (in June!)

Yellow-Bellied Marmont at the top of the mountain, who asked if I had any spare change

Sign at the Summit
There is half the amount of oxygen in the air as there is at sea level. (Gasp!!)

Three-mile-high photo op!

View from the top

See the guard rails??
