|Peak:||Pikes Peak (14er)|

Drove to trailhead. Be careful! Snowshoes went on about a mile or so up...deep snow in the trees and had snowshoes on the rest of the climb until the road. Nice trench in place. Day started out sorta nice then got windy and cold. Turned around about a mile from the summit. On the way out we ran into a guy stuck on the road above the Mennonite Camp. Tried to help him but didn‘t get him out. Was just barely able to get around him. We called Sheriff‘s Dept. when we got out so they could send someone up to help. Mountain is in climbable shape...just didn‘t make it this time.
