Cog Railroad

Today we drove down to Colorado Springs to take the cog railway up to the summit of Pikes Peak. This was my first train ride so I was so excited to see the train. I had a window seat and was able to point out all the creatures and other attractions for everyone.

Here’s a shot of one of the other trains we passed on the way up. At this point we were above tree line and were now in the marmot territory. Marmots looked like little beavers and were all around the train tracks. We also spotted a few long horned rams in this area.
