Longs Peak is the apple of my eye when it comes to Colorado’s mountains, but to many others Pikes Peak is “the peak.” And there’s a lot to be said for a 14,114-foot peak that travelers can “climb” on foot, by car, or by cog railway.
Oddly enough, until today I’d not thought to look for webcams up there and it seems there are at least two. One faces east with the railway stop in the foreground and Colorado Springs in the distance. The other rotates through a full 360° panorama, pausing every four or five seconds.
As in Rocky Mountain National Park, it appears there’s still a lot of plowing to do to be fully ready for the summer tourist season.
