COLORADO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Nicole and I connected on the Girls Love Travel Facebook group a while back! She and her boyfriend Cole were coming to Colorado to celebrate her birthday, camp and adventure. The drove from their home in Kansas City to explore Colorado and as a little treat for her birthday, Cole and Nicole did a fun little couple's adventure session with me in the Woodland Park area. They brought their jeep and their pup Kina along for our afternoon of fun and photos. Since Cole and Nicole are from Kansas City, I am going to have some random fun facts about Pikes Peak (the mountain in the background) in this blog post! I hope you enjoy!
Pikes Peak is one of Colorado’s 53 fourteeners.
Pike's Peak was the inspiration behind "America the Beautiful."
Katherine Lee Bates wrote the song in 1893 after an excursion to the summit of Pike's Peak. She finished writing the lyrics before leaving Colorado Springs but didn't publish the song until two years later.
The elevation on Pikes Peak is 14,115
Although Pikes Peak Colorado is indeed a massive mountain, it actually ranks 31 in the state, out of a total of 54. The highest mountain is called Mt. Elbert, which has a height of 14,433 feet, but it is not as famous so understandably, most believe Pikes Peak is the highest. Pikes Peak is a few hundred feet shorter, coming in at 14,110 feet high.
Pikes Peak is the most visited mountain in North America.
It’s the 2nd most visited mountain in the world behind Mount Fuji.
