Trailer Homes

There's quite a few trailer homes dotting the landscape on Highway 94. The home in the bottom photo is for sale and is very close to the NW corner of Rush Road & Highway 94!
We drove around and a road suddenly turned into a bumpy dirt road. I got a little upset at how washboard bumps were hurting my car. The bumps were so bad I couldn't hold the camera straight. :(
Pikes Peak The lighting from the clouds and rain weren't good for picture taking on the way back, but here's a photo of Pikes Peak approximately 8 to 10 miles west of Ellicott from my "Colorado Extras" pictorial.
