Parents and Teachers: Please note we are making some internal changes to the site. As a result, the Great American Multiplication Challenge, Spellerz!, Burnside's Billions and couple of other games will not show statistics or return save codes for the next few days. They will be playable, but no data will be saved. They should be fully functional again by the end of the week. As always, please support this site by following me on FACEBOOK or TWITTER.

Pike’s Peak

 

Pike’s Peak

   

Pike’s Peak (14,110 ft.) is the most visited mountain in North America, and the second most visited in the world. The peak itself is the easternmost high peak in the Rockies. It came to symbolize the gold rush of 1859. It was named after Zebulon Pike, who surveyed the area after the Louisiana Purchase (1806). The famous American song, “American the Beautiful” was written by Katherine Lee Bates after she became overwhelmed with the “majesty” of the view atop the mountain.
