Then the road became gravel and wider.
It was washboarded in some places but overall a nice gravel road.
Then it narrowed and was curvier. We really had to watch for people going too fast around the curves.
Lots of boulders around. We went up and down mountains where the roads were really narrow and rough. Sometimes the bumps in the road were large rocks.
The start of the trail to get to Devil's Head. it's a 3 mile round trip with a 900'+ elevation gain.
The trail was well maintained with plenty of benches for resting.
Walking through the aspen trees.
Still lots of boulders around.
On of the rocky mountain peaks in the area.
The path was concrete and grated in this short segment.
What a view and we're not even to the top!
We called this "Thumb Rock".
A narrow place right before we get to the top of the trail.
First sight of the stairs leading up to the watch tower. Yep, 143 steps up. Pretty steep too.
The watchperson's cabin at the foot of the stairs. Electricity but no running water.
Sign at the base of the stairs.
The next few photos are the view from the watch tower. Supposedly you can see 100 miles in each direction.
Rain clouds moving in from the west.
Pikes Peak with its head in the clouds again.
I wonder if one of these comprise the "horns" of Devil's Head.
A few peaks inside the watch tower.
You know we're just a couple of overgrown kids.
Downtown Denver - Yeah I know you can't see the skyscrapers but we could. It's only 35 miles away.
Right at the top of the rocks were a couple of bushes covered in ladybugs. Yes, all that red is ladybugs.
