Fountain Colorado Campground Waterfall
This is the first spillway we deemed as a waterfall when we first started our trip. Little did we know what amazing falls we were to see in the very near future.
We finally made it to Colorado and the mountains of fun begins. No sense in starting small so we began with the drive up Pike's Peak. It is not for the faint of heart and the air starts to get a little thin at 14,410 above sea level. Especially when we are from Jacksonville, FL where 40 feet above sea level is considered really getting up there and some get nose bleeds whenever they go across the top of the Dames Point Bridge.
We had planned on taking the Cog Railroad but it was retired after last season and 126 years of continuous operation. As you will see later the drive can be quite exciting.
We hope you enjoy the photos and the stories around them as the adventure continues on the way to Alaska.
