Pikes Peak as Seen in Early Postcards

When: Thu., Aug. 15, 7 p.m. 2013

It used to be a strenuous two-day trek on a mule to reach the top of Pikes Peak. Now you can get there in an hour and a half on a sleek, self-powered Swiss train that holds 200 people. Local historian Mel McFarland knows all about the locomotive progression from ass to class, and his presentation "Pikes Peak as Seen in Early Postcards" happens tonight at the Palmer Lake Town Hall (28 Valley Crescent, Palmer Lake, palmerdividehistory.org). The slides start rolling at 7, it's free, and refreshments will follow. — Hannah Brenneman
