Can't beat the views and the homemade ice cream

My sister's parents-in-law outdid themselves tonight! We feasted on baked potatoes and fresh steaks off the grill from their personally-owned herd of cattle, finishing off with homemade Butterfinger ice cream. Hoo boy, put a scoop right there in my bowl! 

After dinner, we drove out to Wilkerson Pass to see dusk fall. The views were absolutely gorgeous. To the west was the South Park area with the snow-capped Collegiate Peaks in the distance (Mt. Yale, Mt. Columbia, Mt. Harvard, and Mt. Princeton). To the east was the majestic Pikes Peak - the most famous mountain in the area. I understood how the early pioneers felt stirred to reach the summit, but not enough to join them on foot. Perhaps tomorrow I'll just take the train to the top...
