Sub-Alpine Ecosystem on the Way Up
America the Beautiful
The Rocky Mountains and Pikes Peak
A view after our trip to the summit
Brenda had sweaty palms the last twenty minutes the kids were very quiet as we ascended the last miles through switchbacks without any guardrails.
Well above the tree line, you feel like a mountain explorer, but you can drive your car to the very top!
One of the critters we saw on the way.
