Time for a little sightseeing today. The morning was occupied by a drive to the top of Pikes Peak. The weather cooperated, and we were treated to a beautiful view from 14,110 feet above sea level. For all of my friends and familiy sweltering in Alabama, the temperature on top of Pikes Peak was in the low 50s and there was still plenty of snow. Oh, how I wish I could bottle some of that cool, crisp mountain air and bring it back with me. As far as tornado chasing went, today was a bust. We saw a few storms develop over the plains of eastern Colorado east of Denver, but the cap was so strong that none of them could break through and become supercells.
