Family Trip on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway

A couple of weeks ago our family (along with Grandma and Grandpa) took a day trip up to the top of "America's Mountain", also known as Pikes Peak, and we did it in style. Instead of driving up the mountain as done in times past, we decided to take the Cog railway up, and it didn't disappoint.

Fun on the train.

Some of the beautiful scenery on the way up.

The doughnuts at the summit are very unique. The altitude gives them a very distinct flavor.

Yep, we made it.

And as always, here is a video:
