Pikes Peak

We arrived at the entrance to Pikes Peak a little after 4PM. The afternoon sunlight with dramatic clouds flowing over the mountain and the gorgeous terrain provided for an amazing drive.

This turned out to be our first “summit” with a gift shop and parking lot! 🙂 We did see a lady hiking up, and we wanted to cheer her on, as hiking Pikes Peak is a great accomplishment.

When we arrived at the top, the clouds obscured our view, but by the time we came out of the gift shop, they had cleared. Grateful to have some amazing views, we grabbed pictures, and then we went to another area that was not the touristy spot, and we watched the clouds roll over the mountain and then over us. An awesome moment of God’s incredible Hand over nature!

Enjoy the pictures!


It was windy and cold!

Love this one!

So windy!

If you look closely at the above picture, you’ll see Jesse’s shadow. A really incredible moment that happened with the clouds and sun!

“The heavens declare the glory of God;
and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”
Psalm 19:1
