573 - Summit of Pikes Peak (Alt. 14,110 Ft.)

Dublin Core

Title

573 - Summit of Pikes Peak (Alt. 14,110 Ft.)
Showing Summit House of the Pikes Peak Auto Highway, Colorado

Description

This post card depicts a colorful house at the summit of Pikes Peak in Colorado. We see a few cars around the building and a few people standing at the top overlooking the edge. At first glance, it may seem like the house is in the middle of a beach or some kind of waterway due to the rocks and blue reflection on the road, but it is actually many feet in the air on a mountain top.

Printed Text (Back)

On top of the Pikes Peak at the terminus of the Pikes Peak Auto Highway stands the commodious summit house, a haven of warmth and comfort after the often chilling trip up the granite slopes of the peak. Here the visitor may look out from wide windows or from the observation tower at the sweeping views offered by the great elevation of the mighty mountain.
