We figured if there was flooding up north we would go south to Manitou Springs and booked tickets on the cog railway to the top of Pikes Peak. The railway was a fun way of getting to the top, although Melissa might disagree she was excited at the beginning but quickly realized she's afraid of heights.
Sadly as we approached the top the clouds/fog rolled out in and we couldn't see a darn thing. At least we got to eat some delicious donuts.
On the way down we were treated to some great scenery and little critters posing for us.
It was great to ring in my 40s with great friends, family, wine and laughter.
