Zebulon Pike first made mention of Colorados Front Range of Rocky Mountains in November, 1806. At two oclock in the afternoon I thought I could distinguish a mountain to our right, which appeared like a small blue cloud. That small blue cloud turned out to be a 14,110-foot-high peak west of present-day Colorado Springs: Pikes Peak.

In 1893, Katharine Lee Bates crested the summit, and afterward penned America the Beautiful, forever identifying Pikes Peak Country as an icon of the American West.Today, Pikes Peak Country is the majestic heart of a great number of wonders, as early travel pamphlets proclaimed -- Colorado Springs- Garden of the Gods National Natural Landmark- the Air Force Academy- Manitou Springs- Old Colorado City- the Pikes Peak Highway, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument- Cripple Creek and Victor- and the Royal Gorge -- all beautifully captured in A Portrait of Pikes Peak Country.
