Pike week begins

Today is the first day of what the Colorado Springs City Council has officially dubbed Pike Week in honor of the area's first Western explorer and first publicly confounded mountain climber.

The week is marked by a series of activities, including the displaying of items from a 1906 time capsule hidden under a Zeb Pike memorial downtown, and the display of some of his 200-year-old papers and journals he carried on his expedition.
