We have been to Colorado Springs many times over the years. Each time we marveled at Pike’s Peak, which towers over the city and is visible from every part of town. But we never had the time or opportunity to actually make the trek up “America’s Mountain,” as they have dubbed it. So this time, with beautiful weather, the Can Am, and enough time in the schedule we decided to make the trip. As the blog says, “if not now, when?”
We decided the Can Am is the perfect way to see the mountain. It is small and nimble for the hairpin turns, but stable enough to handle the wind and bumps. And the views were tremendous, as you can see. As you might guess, it was a little windy at the top.
