We both drove up Pikes Peak and took the cogway in my childhood, I believe once each. And yet I have no recollection of the donuts, whether they were offered, or if we had them, or even if I rued missing out (and I am sure I would have).

But we have been up there and savored the views of “purple mountain’s majesty.” I want to say “Who needs a donut with all that,” but I would be lying if I said I didn’t remember trying one (or wanting one, or whatever).
