Pikes Peak Sees Summer Snow

DENVER (CBS4) –  Unusually cool air gripping most of Colorado was enough to turn rain into snow on top of Pikes Peak late Sunday and early Monday.

Snow on Colorado’s fourteeners is not uncommon during the summer months but it is more rare during the warmest weeks of the season in late July and early August. And accumulation is even more usual during this time.

At one point Elk could be seen along the road near the summit (look closely in the center right of this photo!).
