登山列車に揺られること1時間強、Pikes Peakの頂上からColorado Springsを望む。

コロラド州には標高14,000フィート(4,300m弱)越えの山が50以上あって、Pikes Peakは上から数えて30番目になるとか(測定方法によっては20番目ぐらいになったりもするらしいけど)。

ただただ言葉もない。

Pikes Peak (originally Pike’s Peak) is a mountain in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, 10 miles (16 km) west of Colorado Springs, Colorado, in El Paso County in the United States of America.

Originally called “El Capitan” by Spanish settlers, the mountain was renamed Pike’s Peak after Zebulon Pike Jr., an explorer who led an expedition to the southern Colorado area in 1806. At 14,115 feet (4,302 m),[1] it is one of Colorado’s 54 fourteeners (mountains that rise more than 14,000 feet (4,267.2 m) above mean sea level) and is a designated National Historic Landmark.

The mountain is also the site of the annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon foot races on Barr Trail.

In mountaineering in the United States, a fourteener (or “14er”) is a mountain peak that exceeds 14,000 feet (4,267.2 meters) elevation. (This term is not usually significant outside the U.S.) This is a complete list of the 53 fourteeners in the U.S. State of Colorado with a minimum of 300 feet (91.44 meters) of topographic prominence. See the main fourteener article, which has a list of all of the fourteeners in the United States, for some information about how such lists are determined and caveats about elevation and ranking accuracy.
