Summit of Pikes Peak at Sunrise – 1937


517,  Summit of Pikes Peak at sunrise.   Pikes Peak is America’s most famous mountain.  113317.  For half a century Pikes Peak has been a point of pilgrimage for the tourist and sightseer.  The trip is a badge of travel.  Thousands journey especially to see the majestic grandeur of the sunrise; an experience never to be forgotten especially if it chances that it occurs in a sea of clouds.   Sanborn Souvenir Co., Denver, Colo.

No post mark. No address.

Another of the unused post cards from the Weaver trip to the West Coast.   They repeated this trip in 1960, after Grandpa Lee retired from Texaco.    There are movie pictures of Grandma sitting at the top of Pikes Peak on the seat of a Covered Wagon.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
