Here is a nice shot of Red Mountain and some of homes south of Manitou Avenue below. If you enjoy hiking, reaching the summit of Red Mountain is definitely a worthwhile thing to do. The view from the summit offers a grand view of Pikes Peak, the Manitou Incline, downtown Manitou Springs, Garden of the Gods and out towards Colorado Springs.
For this photo, I was in the backyard of a friend's home who has a beautiful view from town. ;) -Steve
