In July of 1999, we visited Pike's Peak for the first time. We had been through Colorado in 1992, but most of our stops that trip were highway overlooks, which we enjoyed very much.
The visit in 99 was also a short trip, but we intended to see a few things. Spending time with friends that were also visiting and knew the area well was a great way to do it. One of the things we did was ride to the top of Pike's Peak with Bro. Larry and Sis. Rosemary Landress and their two daughters and a son in law.
We rode up in their 1 ton dually pickup. Riding down slowly in the bed of the truck and taking in the view was amazing. Walking part of the way down the mountain with their son in law was even more amazing. It was not the smartest thing I have ever done, but it was memorable.😍
The last time we were in revival at Souls Harbor in Colorado Springs, we drove the Green Machine up to the top and captured the trip for prosperity.
We had not planned to go to Pike's Peak this trip, but returning the favor by driving Bro. Larry and Sis. Rosemary up seemed like the right thing to do and it was!
We have been to the top at least three times in the summer and once in the winter. This was by far the clearest day and prettiest weather! Wow!
The City of Colorado Springs was in the process of building a new visitors center at the top of Pike's Peak the last time we visited in December 2020. It is now complete and it is beautiful!
They left one wall of the old building standing.
Sis. Rose sent us these pictures.
Wow Again! What a wonderful excursion with wonderful friends! It was a super great evening.
Thank you for stopping by.
