Driving Up Pikes Peak Mountain - US Road Trip

Tuesday, March 17, 2020
If you are in the Denver or Colorado Springs area, Pikes Peak is a must see. The view is breathtaking. If you drive to the top beware of the Highwinds and do not ride your brakes coming down the peak, you can overheat your breaks. It's a once in a lifetime view and experience. 

Colorado has 54 mountains over 14,000 feet. One of them is in city of Colorado Springs Pikes Peak.  Pikes Peak stands at 14,110 feet high. It's a great place to visit with friends, family, and children, if you are not from a high altitude area, the change in altitude is very noticeable. Dress warm if you visit.

Words cannot explain the beauty and majesty of this place. I'm just in love with all of it from the snow cap to the mountain view.

Watch the sunset at Emma Wood State Beach Ventura California

Emma Wood State Beach is one of my favorite beaches for day trips. It's quite lovely and peaceful compared to the more crowded beaches further down South, and in that way it could be considered a more hidden gem. The sand is nice, there are quite a few logs to climb along. Secluded beach you can primarily focus on the ocean horizon and the waves crashing into the shoreline.

Perfect to explore and certainly a great place for taking your dog on a walk. Dog owners we came across were respectful. They were thoughtful enough to use a leash while we cross paths. If you are into camping, they do have a camp site within walking distance.

By 5:30 and up we watched the most glorious spectacular sunset with waves pounding against the surf-wall.
