High Skywatch

What's unusual about this ordinary Skywatch Friday photo?
It was taken on top of this mountain, at an elevation of 14,115 feet (4.3 km) above sea level. We took the cog railroad up there on Saturday - lots more photos to come from that trip when I get caught up. (The sign is outdated because the mountain is slightly higher than originally thought.)

  8. Hooray -- I loved our visit to Pikes Peak. Our son and dil drove us up there and that was great of course. But I would love to try that rail once too.

  12. The cog railway up to the summit of Pikes Peak was on our trip plans, until my hubby had trouble breathing when we drove up Mt. Evans. We decided Pikes Peak wouldn't be a good idea after all. We enjoyed Mt. Evans and then later took a drive into Rocky Mtn. National Park, and we were happy with those two forays. Love your cloudy sky!

  15. How high is Pike's Peak now that they have reevaluated it? I'll have to look it up. It's probably too late this season to drive up there but my husband and I will definitely go next summer.

  16. I wonder if the sea level dropped making the mountain five feet higher. :)
