Last week marked the 200th anniversary of the moment an early American explorer, Edwin P. James, summited Pikes Peak. A scientist and botanist, James noted the experience in his journal with a particular delight over the diverse flowering alpine landscape he found above the tree line.  

We have lots to be excited about on the summit as well. The construction site for the new summit complex is taking on aesthetic components that compliment the surrounding landscape with the addition of some gorgeous textured stone face on the building’s shell. The (sandstone?) is the same shade of pink as the signature Pikes Peak Granite boulders found on the peak. Installation of the framework for huge glass windows and a meandering boardwalk are continuing as well. When complete, these features will allow guests to explore the surrounding landscape and observe the same beauty Edwin James did 200 years ago.
