Pikes Peak in Colorado

Life & more | 2010.12.26 16:48 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

These photos are from Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs. I went up there in

Pikes Peak with my family on Dec. 23, 2010. It was a very nice trip and scenery

even though I couldn't go to the summit, Pikes Peak, due to the weather.

I could go up to 11,440 Ft out of 14,115 Ft, but the elevation I went is the highest

elevation to me ever. What a wonderful experience it is!

And this is some information about Pekes Peak.

Pikes Peak is the most visited mountain in North America and the second most

visited mountain in the world behind Japan's Mount Fuji, Pikes Peak forms a stunning

backdrop for Colorado Springs and the Garden of the Gods. At an altitude of 14,110

feet above sea level, Pikes Peak is the 31st highest peak out of 54 Colorado peaks.

It is the farthest east of the big peaks in the Rocky Mountain chain, which contributed

to its early fame among explorers, pioneers and immigrants and made it the symbol of

the 1859 Gold Rush to Colorado with the slogan, "Pikes Peak or Bust". The 8.9 mile

Cog Railway started operating year round in 2007 weather permitting.

Over a half million people reach the summit house every year by the Pikes Peak

Highway, Barr Trail or the Pikes Peak Cog Railway. The 19-mile Pikes Peak Highway,

paved part of the way, is open year round, weather permitting. Barr Trail is the longest

of any trails leading to the top of the 54 mountains in Colorado that are over 14,000 feet,

and offers the greatest base-to-summit elevation gain in the state: 7,400 feet. About

15,000 people a year attempt to climb Pikes Peak on foot. The 13-mile trail begins

at the base of Pikes Peak in Manitou Springs.

 
Three notable events take place on the mountain each year. The Pikes Peak Marathon,

a 26 mile round trip foot race up Barr Trail and then back down each August, draws

thousands of runners from all over the world. The current Pikes Peak Marathon record

which was set in 1993 is 3 hours 16 minutes 30 seconds. The second event, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on Sunday July 20, 2008 is a race on the 12.42 mile gravel road which starts around the 6 1/2 mile mark on the highway. In 2007 Nobuhiro Tajima set a new record of 10 minutes 1 second. The third event is the AdAmAn Club New Years Fireworks display on December 31 at midnight.

Idaho Springs has a population of 1,893 (and growing!) and is the largest town in

Clear Creek County. Idaho Springs and the Clear Creek County area offer many possibilities

for exploring the history of the area, recreational opportunities and other activities.

 

The Idaho Springs City Hall (shown at right) is the old Grass Valley School House.

In 1984 the school was due to be destroyed. The City of Idaho Springs bought the building

and had the school house moved to its current location. The building now holds City Hall,

the Idaho Springs Police Department and the Idaho Springs Municipal Court.

There are many hot springs in Idaho springs. Among them, I went to indian hot springs,

which was built in 1905. It is over 100 years old.

The building is quite old and looks like old but have something original about hot springs.

There are main resort rooms, inn room, lodge rooms, and cabin. It also has mineral water

swimming pool, cave bath, and private bath (like a small public bath in Korea).

For dinner, I went to an original colorado pizza restaurant in idaho springs.

Its name is Beau Jo's Pizza. The store has huge spaces and many people inside.

Pizza at Beau Jo's was so great with a big size.
