First, if you are from Florida and over 50 like me make sure you are in shape, like an Olympian. Even when we drove most of the way up, the little hiking we did was very strenuous to me. My son and his dogs were fine, so if you are young and fit you might be fine. But it was all worth it. we hoped to see some mountain sheep but I believe we were a bit early for them. the views are amazing, it was a bit chilly but not too bad. we saw some ice formations close to the peak. I want to get back there next year for fall. By the way, if you have to pick between pikes peak and Mt. Evans is a no brainier, go Evans. I did visit both and will not be going back to pikes peak.
