Living On the Side of Pikes Peak

Listen Now

Husband and wife Neal and Teresa Taylor have been living their dream for the last eight years. They’ve been the caretakers at Barr Camp, halfway up Pikes Peak. It's a place where hikers and runners can take a load off. Accessible only on foot, and with some 25,000 visitors a year, taking care of the rustic camp is no small task. But The Taylors wouldn’t trade the last eight years for anything. They’re now in their 50s, and are ready for the next chapter. Ryan Warner speaks with Neal and Teresa about living on the mountain that inspired "America The Beautiful" and about the search for the next caretakers... because the job is open!
