Germs, Fog, and Missing a Hotel
It would be so nice if I could find a blog - posting program for my phone which would allow me to post more than one photo! Nevertheless, this photo sums up our day yesterday. We rode the cog railroad up Pikes Peak and thoroughly enjoyed the ascent. Beautiful. Fascinating. Unique.
Unfortunately, a major thunderstorm also made the ascent, too, so the visibility was zero from the summit. We shivered in the 38 degree weather, and our feverish birthday boy shivered long after we returned to our very chilly campground,
As a gesture of graciousness, I have offered to let that sick boy sit in the front during our long ride today. I will be a magnificent mother and take the back seat - right between two wild and energy filled siblings. We shall see what shape I am in by the time we reach Mt. Rushmore.
