Reaching to the pikes peak was a very thrilling experience. It is tough to describe in words - pictures explain better. But still I would say that within an hour we reached to 14000 ft. And at the top we could see till very very far, as if we are at god's seat. We could see where is rain falling & where it is sunny. It was first time I saw how a rain looks like from cloud level. It looks like a dark curtain! Lots of lightening was visible. Also, watching a tourist train cone to that height was very surprising. America Beautiful song (very famous song for school kids) was also composed at this peak - inspired by the view, which kids sang many a times during the ascend.
We were lucky to get a better weather during our ascend. But it got worse very quickly.
Deer incidence. A deer crossed the highway just before our car, creating a flutter on the highway. Jijaj's alertness kept is in check. Nice memorable incident, which could easily would have gone very worse.
