Barry’s mom came and stayed from July 4th until the 30th and we packed a lot into that month. One day she treated us to a ride on the Pikes Peak cog railroad.
I spent most of the trip snuggling one feverish little person or another so I handed the camera to Brenna (I think Barry took a photo or 2 too). Hunter and Eva slept most of the train ride, partly because they didn’t feel well, but also because of the elevation, I think.
This place above is called Inspiration Point.
It was a fitting trip for that month of patriotism because it was up on top of that mountain that Katharine Lee Bates penned the lyrics to America the Beautiful. On a clear day you can see 5 states– Kansas, Wyoming, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and of course Colorado.
