Pikes Peak

Sam, Nathan, and Chris are in town, so up Pikes Peak we went, by car (the cog railway is closed indefinitely). Close to the entire time it "graupeled" on the summit. Graupeling is something between snowing and hailing, according to the ranger. I asked if the railway shutdown caused an increase in the road access traffic. The answer was, "not really." I'm thinking the food/retail service at the summit is what's suffering if the railway attendance there is not being replaced by roadway traffic. All the photos are here.

That's graupel in Matteo's hair.

A marmot.
