Pikes Peak Surrounded by Clouds – 1937


565 – Pikes Peak, Altitude 14,109 Feet, Surrounded by clouds.   Famous in frontier history for the slogan “Pikes Peak or Bust”.     Pikes Peak is, perhaps, America’s most famous mountain and also one of its most impressive.  Other peaks of great elevation are but little above surrounding mountains while Pikes Peak from the east towers over 8000 feet above Colorado Springs and surrounding plains, a snow-capped landmark that may be seen for over a hundred miles.     Pub. by Sanborn Souvenir Co., Inc., Denver, Colo. — Made in U.S.A.   28282.

Another of the unused post cards in the collection dating back to the Weaver automobile trip to the West Coast in 1937.




About Pat Shaul

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.
