Of course no trip to Colorado would be complete without going up to the summit of Pikes Peak. All of these pictures were taken from the summit. I've driven up there several times and I never stop on the way up. I drive to the top and then make all my stops on the way down. It is really beautiful to look out over the surrounding country. If you've never been up there and get a chance to go don't pass it up. While there are steep banks on the side of the road it's not a bad drive at all because the road is good. It's a much better/wider road than the one that goes up to Mt. Evans. However, if you want to take your half of the road in the middle of the road I wouldn't advise driving up there. :)
Rails of the cog train that you can ride to the summit for a fee.
Here comes the cog train.
