Pancake Rocks Trail

From a hike last July, here are some photos of the trail to Pancake rocks on the western side of Pikes Peak. This trail goes up to approximately 11,000 feet elevation (3,350 meters), passing through evergreen forests and glades of aspen.
This is one of my favorite hikes, but it's a fairly long round-trip (over 6 miles) and over an hour's drive from the house, so I don't do it that often. But it makes for a couple of great Scenic Sunday posts when I do! Check back for more photos from this hike soon, including the famous rocks for which the trail is named. (And yes, little Socks hiked the whole way with me!)

Many thanks to Elettra for honoring me with the Reliable Blog award!

    Al, that comment from Jose was for me -he must still have been in jet lag when he wrote the comment on your blog! Sorry, I have some strange friends :):)
