Pikes Peak

This week we took the opportunity to drive up to Pikes Peak. This was one of my items on my bucket list for Colorado. There is a fee to go up the mountain and they do offer Military discounts. The drive was beautiful and quiet. Along the way up there are scenic spots to stop by and there are three gift shop. We where a little bit unprepared for the temperature especially my husband who decided to wear just a t-shirt. My first recommendations if you plan to go is dress in layers, take one good heavy coat, wear long pants and sleeves. It might be hot at the bottom but be prepared for it to be cold at the top. Since we did not have coats we did not really get to take a lot of pictures because we where freezing. Second, pack some snacks and a lunch you can enjoy at the top. The gift shop at the top does have food but to me it was pricey $5 for just a cheeseburger..no drink or fries that cost extra. N/e here are some pictures
