There she is. 14,110 ft tall.

I think this picture shows the course from the ski area to Glen Cove.

One part of the W's at Pikes Peak.

The practice runs were held very early in the morning. The sun didn't have a chance to burn through this cloud front before it went on the course. If you look closely, you can see that this driver, Mike Childress #229, had his 2003 Ford F150 on two wheels! Mike finished 2nd in the ProTruck Divsion with a time of 14:16.701.

Fast car, nothing looks too wrong with it, right? Kind of throwing up a lot of dirt, but no biggie, right?
I think this is Robert Lopez #21 in the Pikes Peak Open division.

This tire and two more identical ones may be the reason for the car throwing up so much dirt! Mr. Lopez finished 2nd in his class in his 2006 Subaru WRX STI with a final time of 13:13.143. As a side note and not to discredit Robert's finish, half of the cars in the Pikes Peak Open division did not finish. Here is Marty Roestenburg, who was also in the Pikes Peak Open Division. Very nice guy and an exceptional racer. He was almost a full minute ahead of the other cars in his division at the 16 mile checkpoint!

Garden of the Gods.

Kissing camels at the Garden of the Gods. Can you see them?

Here are the camels close up.

COG railway. I hope it never needs these last couple of... inches!
