Captured here in almost 200 vintage images are the lives, trials, adventures, and leisures of some of the Peaks early pioneers and visitors, covering a span of almost 60 years. Along with rare images of the Pikes Peak area from the late 1800s, this collection contains a number of previously unpublished photographs. These include pictures of female pioneers traversing mountains in Cheyenne canons and other vicinities in the 1920s- Colorado Mountain Club members on their hiking trips in the area- pre-World War I memoirs and poems from local residents- and pictures of local prospectors, like Frank Nelson, who remained long after the large gold deposits were discovered.

Also featured is the development of the surrounding communities and attractions of the Peak, including Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Cripple Creek, Cheyenne Mountain and Canons, Garden of the Gods, Canon City, Royal Gorge, the Broadmoor Hotel, and the Cliff House.
