Summit of Pike's Peak, Colorado USA
USA
Pike’s Peak is a mountain in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains just west of Colorado Springs, Colorado. The mountain was named after Zebulon Pike, Jr., the explorer who led an expedition to southern Colorado in 1806. The mountain, at 14,115 is a designated National Historical Landmark. It was one of the first mountains visible from the Prairie as the early settlers moved west. It is the easternmost 14,000 foot peak in the U.S. The peak was first climbed by Europeans in 1820 by a botanist named Edwin James. The mountain became the namesake of the 1858 Colorado Gold Rush when the slogan of the miners became “Pike’s Peak or Bust.” There is a gift shop and restaurant on the top of the peak and there is a cog railway to top as well as a paved highway. At the time this panorama was taken, it was snowing in June.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
