Pikes Peak! If you live in Green Mountain Falls and host lots of out-of-town
visitors, you have probably traveled up the Pikes Peak Highway frequently. How understandable!
The scenery throughout the 18-mile fully maintained highway is always entertaining, as
the road goes through numerous altitude zones while reaching 14,110 feet above sea level. On the way down, all vehicles have their brakes checked for overheating, but do not let that
worry you. If you are safe driver with a good set of breaks on your car, you'll likely not have any problems. Just be sure to drive in a very low gear!
I included a few more Pikes Peak photos below. Also, check out the
Pikes Peak web cam if you live out of town.
UPDATE FROM WEBMASTER: I recent visited Pikes Peak via the Pikes Peak Highway in November 2007.
