Our campground management job is conveniently located within day trip distance of quite a few of Colorado’s tallest peaks.
The National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum is located in Leadville Colorado. The highest incorporated town in the USA. Elevation 10,200. Senior admission price $6. A very cool place to visit and learn.
Golden age passport free admission into Mount Evans access highway, North America’s highest highway. Many wonderful sights all the way to the top.
Pike’s Peak has always attracted folks. At the summit we ran into a group of BMW motorcycle riders that included a NASA Astronaut.
Our sharp eyed buddy Pete was doing the driving that day and he was the first to realize that we were in the presence of an authentic spaceman. We were all at the summit sign taking photos.
