Taking the F150 up Pikes Peak

Our turbo-charged Pikes Peak hill climber......complete with pit bike in the bed

After the Colorado Championship Tour two weeks ago, I took the opportunity to drive up Pikes Peak. Being a Monday morning, the traffic was low and I didn't really get held up going up or down. As you can see from the photos below, the view was well worth it.
