Finally here we are at the end of the paved road just a few hundred feet below the summit. The sign says "elevation 14,130 feet" and the posed picture is proof that I stood at a "Fourteener" the local name for those few mountains that are over 14,000 feet. Rhys and Molly made more friends and so obviously enjoyed the 48 degree temperature! The photo on the left is from an observation point and the snow-capped peak in the very far distance is Pike's Peak! Yes, we could see that far!
I have several other good pictures from the day, but need to do some cropping and editing to make them meaningful.....K
