  2. It does look like fun πŸ™‚

    Other than the family shot, which made me smile, I like the red train shot and the falling snow (or sleet or rain) in the last one, best. The snow covered trees are very pretty too, but there’s something about the contrast of the red train that takes my fancy.

    wow, beautiful and it was snowing!! I don’t think I could ever get George on that w/ his fear of heights. Looks like so much fun!

    omg, they really don’t like their pic taken, huh? So funny…….you just gotta keep taking them, nonstop, my kids could care less when i have the camera out, it’s called conditioning, lol!!!

    • Conditioning? LOL In my house they call that “torturing”! πŸ˜‰

  4. At least you knew it would be cold at the summit. I rode this train up in mid-summer wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Typically clueless tourist who found temps in the 30’s at the summit. LOL

    This is a must do if you visit Colorado Springs just remember to bring a coat, even in summer.

    • That’s what you get for not doing any research πŸ˜‰ I always check websites, etc. so I know what to expect. Even checked the weather for Pikes Peak and knew it was supposed to snow. I was a little disappointed that we didn’t make it to the summit.
      Btw. the “tour guide” (or whatever his title is) on the train said that a storm like we were having that day, could dump 3-6 FEET of snow at the summit!

      • I was there (*gasp*) before the Internet. Can you imagine that? Look how easy it was to find all that information for your trip. Back then I would have had to go to a library and/or write to tourist bureaus to get limited info.

        Today, it’s just a search string a few clicks.

  5. So strange to see snow again! What fun places you have seen – a real adventure! I’m glad I can travel along from the warmth of my office. πŸ™‚ The family shot is priceless – what a gang you’ve got there. I would have loved the train ride – such a different experience than being in a car! Can’t wait to see more! πŸ™‚

    • It’s NICE to look at snow again….. with temps in the mid 80’s (not ready for that yet!) and the pollen turning my car GREEN, I would rather be there than here.

  6. Scott, before the Internet? That was AGES ago!! πŸ™‚
    The Internet makes things soo much easier now, as does digital photography (bet you were shooting film back then, too).

    • Aye, slide and print film. ISO’s 64 and 100. Now I dial up to 1600 ISO with even thinking about it. Digital brought back the fun of photography for me.
