Barbara Sparks' study in contrasts 

Looking up at Pikes Peak from Colorado Springs, you see an 8,000-foot vertical differential, says photographer Barbara Sparks. "But in the Himalayas, the peaks are 28,000 [feet], and sometimes you're at 4,000 when you see those, so it's like three times the vertical that we see here. ... The elevation gain is absolutely incredible."
