Vacation Day Eight (Part 2)

July 24, 2009 ~ After touring the Olympic Training Center we had some time to kill before we went up Pike's Peak. We decided to drive thru the Garden of the Gods. We sat in the visitor's center to kill more time while the kids looked around the gift shop. Finally it was time to head over to Manitou Springs to take the Cog thingy up Pike's Peak.

This is the depot. Isn't it cute?

Love this picture.

Colton checking out the scenery.

Views going up the mountain.

All of us on top. It was 95 degrees at the bottom and when we got to the top it was 38 degrees. Crazy. It was really hard to breathe. Just walking got your heart going.

Views from top of summit.

There was still a little bit of snow left.

Are the way down we saw some elk. The conductor told us that this was the first time they have seen the elk this summer. Pretty cool!
