Pike Day

It was a day much like this, 201 years ago, that young army captain Zebulon Pike wrote that, while riding across in what is now southeastern Colorado, he thought he could "distinguish a mountain to our right, which appeared like a small blue cloud."
It was Pikes Peak.
You can read more about his journey in a collection of articles in the Gazette.
