Friday the Memorial Day “games” began at the entrances to Rocky Mountain National Park. Cars lined up bumper to bumper waiting to get through the toll plazas. So today I looked somewhat farther south (160 miles or so) … and quite a bit higher.
This was the scene on the summit of Pikes Peak (elev. 14,114 ft) this afternoon. And it was probably more crowded earlier in the afternoon. How’d you like to drive all the way up here (about an hour from Manitou Springs) and then not be able to find a parking space?
