When Betsy and I took our western trip in 2012, the first place we visited in Colorado was Pikes Peak. We had long talked about visiting the summit of the mountain, and we were delighted that we could see Pikes Peak from our motel on our first night.
The next morning we headed to the mountain and up the Pikes Peak Highway. Although the summit was our goal, we had to make several stops on the way up. One of our first stops was at Crystal Creek Reservoir, at about Mile Marker 6.
The combination of a beautiful sky, snow-capped peaks and mirror-like water simply made it impossible for us to drive by without stopping.
We walked along the shore just soaking up the scenery around us. My snow-loving Beautiful Bride was absolutely delighted.
We also enjoyed the sight of some golden aspens, a sight we don’t see here in Tennessee.
I couldn’t resist creating a panorama of the gorgeous scene before us.
