    Pike’s Peak Literally Takes Your Breath Away

    The drive to Pike’s Peak is not free ($15 adults, $5 kids) and is not for the faint of heart. There are lots of scenic stops along the way with breathtaking views. When we went the actual peak area was being renovated so a shuttle bus ran from about a mile down the road. Usually dogs are not allowed on the shuttle but the guy at the gate said they were making exceptions. However, the line was too long so we decided to take a short hike to get basically the same view. We were cognizant if the high altitude and how it could affect our pup, so he walked a little and we carried him a little. The views are stunning, and the drive up (and down) and a little white-knuckle at times. Make sure to have at least half a tank of gas, plenty of water, and a sweater, as the temperature is a good 25F or more cooler than at the bottom (and it’s pretty windy)!
