Trip to Pikes Peak
We took our parents (my in-laws) to Pikes Peak recently. I really experienced shortness of breath while at the summit. The oxygen here was less and I could really felt it. And my father in-law had painful ears (because of the air pressure). Thus, we didn't spend a lot of time at the summit.
View from the Summit. It was very windy and COLD! We wore an extra fleece and a winter jacket and still felt the chill because of the strong wind.
My in-laws with Evy. This was taken on the way up to the summit. We also spotted two skiers ski down the thinly snow packed slope at the side of the mountain. See, no jacket here because it was not as cold yet.
On the way down, we stopped by the reservoir. Beautiful isn't it? A lot of people fishing here. They caught a lot of Trouts.

Edda took a little snack at the reservoir rest booth.
