May is also dedicated to honoring our Blessed Mother.

Mary’s greatness consists in the fact that she wants to magnify God, not herself. She is lowly: her only desire is to be the handmaid of the Lord (cf. Lk 1:38, 48).”

The top of Pikes Peak is nestled right under heaven and, as sure as the air is crisp, many a prayer has been prayed there.
