The city of Colorado Springs is gathering reflections from community members on their personal connections to Pikes Peak. It's part of a campaign called "My Mountain" leading up to completion of the Pikes Peak Summit Complex next year. The city has shared audio versions of several stories with 91.5 KRCC, which we are editing for broadcast. In this audio postcard, we hear from Brandon Lyons, a paralympian who lives and trains in Colorado Springs.
