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.

Oh I do hope the birthday boy recovers quickly and it is just a chill induced fever nothing worse. As for riding in the back with those two boys all day, you are such a wonderful mother to do so and give up your seat in front. I hope you survive :-)

Oh no!!!!! I hope he is feeling better soon. I dream of taking the Cog Railway up to that peak one day. I wish it had been better for you. Be safe...in the back seat. I am praying for you all.

Awww. I hope he feels better soon.

And when he does, I'll tell admit I'm sooo jealous of your cool climate vacay. We're sweltering in my neck of the woods.
