Cog Railway

All aboard the Cog Railroad on its 9-mile trip from Manitou Springs, at about 6,300 feet above sea level, to Pikes Peak's summit of 14,115, and a jacket, gloves, and hat are a good idea, even if it's 90 degrees when you board.  It was shut down from 2018 to mid-2021 for a complete $100 million rebuild of the tracks, visitor center, and new railcars.  The views are spectacular and at times a bit scary for my selective fear of heights.
