Pikes Peak Feats and Fibs

When: May 22-Oct. 31 2015

A new free exhibit at the Manitou Springs Heritage Center (517 Manitou Ave.,, titled Pikes Peak Feats and Fibs, features examples of "tests of courage and willpower" and tests of "the imagination." It was recently featured on an episode of the Travel Channel's Mysteries of the Museum, where the museum's David Walker described one of the exhibit's more famous pieces: "The artifact is about an inch long," Walker tells the camera, "[and] is gray and brown in color. It would've been good tasting at one point in time, but we probably wouldn't want to eat it now." It's a peanut that Bill Williams pushed up Pikes Peak ... with his nose. — Bryce Crawford
