Frozen to Death
The frozen bodies of a couple were discovered near the summit by a train engineer on August 22, 1911. They had been advised the previous day to delay their accent along the track until a storm passed. A letter was found on the bodies and said "I hope you are having the time of your life in Colorado and do not freeze to death on Pikes Peak."
