??Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way!?
- Dr. Seuss


This shot taken from Manitou Lake in Teller County.


Pikes Peak, located in the front range of the Rocky Mountains near Colorado Springs, has an altitude of 14,110 ft. (4,301 m) and is the most visited mountain in North America. Over half a million people reach the summit house every year by way of the highway or cog railway.

This week-long series has winter views of Pikes Peak (officially Pikes Peak, not Pike's Peak).

It was night and I could see a large and calm lake, reflecting the moon. Black mountains rose around it. I arrived from between two of these mountains, I looked at the lake and the moon, and that was it, nothing else happened.

I was thinking "It isn't as pretty as yesterday's post", then I scrolled further and saw the fence line. As a complete sucker for fences, I changed my mind - this is really, really pretty!
