Oh my goodness gracious, this was one of the most spectacular things we’ve ever done. Maggie had told me in advance that going up the Pike’s Peak Cog Railway was a MUST-DO for our family while in Colorado Springs for the wedding. So I had booked it long in advance and we had 8am train reservations for Friday morning. It was an awesome experience from the minute we got on the train until the minute we got off it. The views were stunning in every direction and the 3+ hour roundtrip train ride went by unbelievably fast.. Despite the fact that our sweet Ky Ky suffered from a serious case of altitude sickness (poor baby! throwing up anywhere is no fun, but it is especially no fun at the summit of a 14,000 foot mountain while everyone else is oohing and aaahhhing over the views)… but even Kyle agreed that it was totally 100% worth it (he seriously did– it was that good!). Meera conked out on the ride down, but the rest of us were wide-eyed the entire time. We were so glad we got to do this! Talk about a Colorado Rocky Mountain High!
