Pike’s Peak, another one of Colorado’s 14’s, or mountains that reach above fourteen thousand feet of elevation.


The air is a bit thin here at the summit. Note that Poco is showing some anxiety in the rareified air.


Many twists and turns as we climb and climb for miles.


We drove up out of the trees into the alpine tundra.


Soon we drove into the zone where the air is so thin that nothing grows and just under the surface there is permafrost.100_3297

Clever sign that we just had to photograph.
