The Crags and Pike's Peak

Woke up this morning and got the itch to do some hiking, so we rounded up some peoples and hit the road on our drive to "The Crags", west of Colorado Springs.
The hike was easy and very scenic.
After the short walk we headed back east towards the Pike's Peak auto road. It was a fun, easy drive to the summit with a few stops for souvenirs and restrooms. The summit was chilly.
As we headed down, we discovered our brakes on the rental van (AKA Family Truckster) were overheating at over 500 degrees, so we were forced to wait a half hour for them to cool.
