Pikes Peak, America's mountain
Our trip to Colorado was great. I thought it was going to be vacation but I was wrong. Vacation is when you relax. This was a sightseeing trip and we got up every morning…early I might add, and drove somewhere else, up a mountain or to a worthy view. In the evening or late afternoon we would find another place to stay. We stayed in five motels for five nights.
One of the memorable drives was to the top of Pikes Peak. My husband had attempted to make that drive 25 years ago when he and his best went on vacation and the road was closed because of snow. It was open this time and wehad one beautiful drive to the top. It’s only 16 miles of winding road. It was sunny with snow flurries at the summit. Beautiful.
He did call his best friend from the top of the mountain and surprised him. They had a nice little chat and were both glad at least one of them had finally made it.
