Research on Pikes Peak

March 2005 I had been on a short trip to Chicago and Texas, but Erik, one of my friends, felt himself passed by this way, as he very much would have liked to join me on this trip, and actually never had been to the United States before. I didn't see this as a problem, though. I could just go back to the States again, and as I still had some holiday left, we left for Colorado the following month. After a first night in Denver we collected the rental car and headed for our first goal: Pikes Peak.
