“Pikes Peak from the Black Forest”
17 ½” x 36”
Media: acrylic on canvas
Original in private collection

Pikes Peak is the most visited mountain in North America, with an altitude of 14,110 feet above sea level. It is the farthest east of the big peaks in the Rocky Mountain chain, and provides a scenic backdrop to the city of Colorado Springs, on the southern front range of Colorado. The mountain’s namesake was Zebulon Pike. He was sent by President Jefferson in 1806, to determine the southwestern boarders of the Louisiana Purchase (1803). The first recorded accent was by Dr. Edwin Jones, who was part of the Long’s surveying expedition of the 1820’s. The view selected for this painting was inspired by Journal sketches made by members of the Long’s expedition, who sketched the mountain from the forested bluffs (now called the Black Forest), northeast of what became Colorado Springs (original in private collection).
