From a 1993 hike up Pikes Peak, here's a photo of Barr Camp.
The whole Barr Trail climbs from Manitou Springs to the top of Pikes Peak in about 12.6 miles (20.3 km) and gains 7,900 feet (2,407 meters) in elevation along the way. Barr Camp is about halfway along the trail. And yes, we hiked all the way up in one day. There's a marathon each year that runs up and back, and the best runners can finish in about three and a half hours! Visit Vintage Weekly for more old photo fun.
Born in London, I've lived in The Netherlands, New York, and Washington DC. Now I've settled down in Colorado and love taking pictures. Unless otherwise stated, all pictures are taken by me with my Nikon D40X. I do almost no photo editing - occasionally I will crop or remove a dust spot, but that's all. What comes out of the camera is what you see here.
