Pikes Peak's Cog Railroad

This morning we caught the 8 a.m. Cog train to the top of pikes peak. Breathing was a little difficult--Roger didn't even attempt a cigarette. I think we both suffered a little altitude sickness from this trip.

Afterward we ate lunch in Manitou Springs and then went to the Garden of the Gods.

Rain moved in while we were there and the thunder and lighting was very cool.

Great pictures! We took the Cog Railroad up to Pikes Peak in May but couldn't go to the top because of the snow. We did get to hike in the Garden of the Gods and loved it! Thanks for bringing back good memories. :)
