America’s Mountain

Living in Colorado Springs at the base of Pikes Peak is truly a wonderful place to not only live, but for friends and family to come and visit.  One thing that everyone who visits us loves to do is to take the cog railway to the top of Pikes Peak.  The cog railway, which is the highest train in the world at over 14,000 feet (4,250 meters), just celebrated its 125th anniversary of operation in June of this year, so it is historic as well providing fascinating views of Pikes Peak and the front range.  For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Tracks – trains, rail tracks, etc., we chose a few photos from one of trips on the cog railway.  The views from the top of Pikes Peak are simply amazing.
