The View From St. Peter’s Dome

So as I told you a couple weeks ago I recently headed back to my home town of Colorado Springs, CO for my 10 year high school reunion.    While I was in town I skipped out on the whole family meet-and-greet barbecue that was scheduled for one afternoon and headed up into the hills.

When one grows up in Colorado Springs one has roughly two sources of entertainment: the mountains and Jesus, and well, I chose the mountains.  I lived in the southwestern part of town, which offered great access to Old Stage and Gold Camp roads, both of which are old mining trails from back in the day.  Now, they’re a nice place to hop in the Tacoma and go for a drive.

On top of Old Stage Road, which runs roughly 40 miles from Colorado Springs to Victor, an old mining ghost town, is a little spot called St. Peter’s Dome.  It’s a rock formation about a 30 minute drive and a 30 minute hike from my old neighborhood, and it offers some ridiculous 360 degree views of the area.  It was one of my favorite places to go back in high school, so it seemed rather fitting to revisit the place.  Have a look.

That’s all for now, I’m sure there will be some pictures of like, Germany coming before too long.

Don’t be a stranger.

  1. These are some awesome photos… they remind me of my church retreat to CO many years ago! You should submit some to Canon’s Project Imaginat10n:
