And you guys think I'm nuts. This guy has cornered the market on nuts. Seems like a nice guy though. Does he really take himself seroiusly? Or is it a joke he plays along with? I don't know.
The thing is if anyone has been up there knows, I have, Pikes Peak is a major natural lighting rod. I don't know if I have ever seen a mountian hit with lightining as often as Pikes Peak gets hit. Scary.
I would like to go up the mountain tram some day and ski down. A very Euro thing to do. Cool mountain. The highest my kids have been so far and they didn't even have to earn it. Just a drive up.
Thx Kalimon, that photo is from the fall of 1972, taken from the top of Wetterhorn. The guy in the orange wind breaker is Gary Kocsis, author (along with one of the Koontz brothers, I think) of an older guide to Colorado mountaineering.
