Hello! I'm back with my last travel post as promised. The afternoon of Day Seven was spent on top of the world! Well, not literally, but from a mid-westerner, it seemed like the top of the world! We went to the top of Pike's Peak…14,115 feet above sea level! Did you know that Pike's Peak is the most visited mountain in North America and the second most visited mountain in the world? After being there, I can certainly see why. There are not enough adjectives in the English language to describe it's beauty!Mount Washington over a year ago; and I must say that even though there were a few nervous moments, it was much more pleasurable than driving. The picture below is the train station. Isn't it cute? The prices to get up to the top of Pike's Peak were much more reasonable than Mount Washington. It only costs $12.00 per car verses $26.00 per car at Mount Washington. And the train cost $36.00 per person verses $66.00 per ticket at Mount Washington. So, about half the cost with twice the mountain height!
It was sad to come down from our mountain top and back to the base. But it was much warmer, we peeled off those winter coats quite quickly. And it's not as if we couldn't just look up and say 'Hi' to Pike's Peak from wherever we were at in Colorado Springs.
Have a great day! Amy
