Just Pictures For Now

It's already after midnight and I'm too tired to post about Day 5 of our vacation.  It was a good day, but I just can't stay up any longer.  I'll try to post about it tomorrow from the motel room as we make our way back home.

Meanwhile, here are some pics of Pikes Peak.

From 6 miles up the Pikes Peak Highway.

Another shot from the lake.

From the summit.  The lake at the left is the same one in the first two photos.

West, from the summit.

East from the summit, looking at Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs.

Looking Northeast, I think.

Northwest, I think.  Dark area is the shadow of a cloud.


Proof.

I'm just back from vacation myself and getting caught up on your trip. Thanks for the ton of pictures and saving me from reading a book. You know, like I usually make people do on my site.
I'm glad that you are having a great time. Love the photos! m.
