". . . we stood at last on that Gate-of-Heaven summit . . . and gazed in wordless rapture over the far expanse of mountain ranges and the sea-like sweep of plain."
-- Katharine Lee Bates, writing in her diary after reaching the summit of Pikes Peak in 1893; nine years later, she would write the immortal words in a poem that are now the lyrics to our classic anthem "America the Beautiful."
