Today's photo-of-the-day is from Pike's Peak. At 14,115 feet, it's one of Colorado's 54 "fourteeners" (or 53, depending on who's counting). Impressively tall, yet you can drive to the summit, where there's a visitor center with a gift shop and a restaurant. But that's not at the absolute summit. To reach the tippy-top, you have to scramble up a boulder field. That's only for sticklers for accuracy (aka anal retentive personalities). Note that this photo was taken with the camera pointed up.
