Editing Make-up No hometoil over the weekend.
The upper lake was feet above the towns it supplied with water. Two miles from the summit one of our ladies was overcome with heart trouble on account of the rarefied air and was left at the home of a track-hand until our return. Others were beginning to suffer. As appropriate to the elevation the Endeavorers had intended to sing "Nearer my God to Thee" as they approached the Summit; but they could finish but one verse, when they were forced to stop for want of breath.
Snow was all around us now and the track was so obstructed the day before as to require shoveling off. The Summit was reached at last. The adage "There is always room at the top" held good here for the reason that altitudinal conditions prevented a crowd from gathering; for those left could hardly wait for the next car.
It was a confused mass of rocks, snow and mud, and the picture of desolation. But the view hence is unsurpassed. The valleys below, with their towns looking like checker-boards; the mountains stretching, range after range, away; the near-by peaks; the deep gorge dropping sharply from the summit; the sight of all these will be well remembered.
But before all could enjoy the view there were some duties required.
These were taking care of those who had succumbed to the effects of rare air. One woman was prostrate, with the usual crowd around, and to her an alleged doctor was giving brandy; the worst "remedy" to apply at this altitude.
Others were gasping around with contorted faces; but by resting in the shelter of the "Summit House" all but three or four were in good shape for the next car. Some of the hardiest of the tourists tried snow balling, just so they could tell their gaping friends at home what Pike's Peak was capable of in July; but their sport was short lived, for there was a wind blowing which would take a foot-ball player's breath.
The original Government Station is still here; but in ruins 46 42 and half-full of snow. There is now a comfortable building of double the size used as a restaurant, relic store and railroad station.
A blazing mid-summer log-fire was comfortable and pleasing if seasonably inconsistent. The cold, thin air made us wish for the next car, which came up in an hour and helping the invalids on board we were soon speeding down the mountain--not forgetting to stop for the sick woman by the way--and in an hour were at Manitou.
Pike's Peak was first ascended by Colonel Zebulon M. Pike inand is one of a group of peaks punctuating the Rocky Mountain range, of which Grey's, Long's and Fremont's Peaks also hold high prominence. Its height is 14, feet.
Named for what was afterward General Pike it has a local importance; he having been born in my native county, and, in fact, is of personal interest to me, as his home was afterwards owned by my father; but long since torn down. It is only operated about three months in the year, or during the tourist season.
Thus far no accidents have happened to passengers, as great care is used. We saw the sights around Pike's Peak, including the Garden of the Gods and then went on our way. For awhile this was southward, until at Puebla, called, from its manufactures, the Pittsburg of the West, we swung around at a sharp angle and 48 44 again got as far north as Denver; going miles to gain The southern route was uninteresting, after what we had seen; the land poor and growing no timber but the weedy scrub-oak.
The mounds of the ants and prairie dog lined the way. Puebla is on the Arkansas, and as intimated above, an important city.
Large smelting works are here; ores for which come from Mexico. Unfortunately the delays caused by the immense passenger travel prevented our going through the Royal Gorge by daylight; but from the headlights of three locomotives drawing as many trains close following one another and the lights of the cars, the depths of the canyon were fairy lighted.
Preparations are now being made to illuminate the Gorge by electricity, so that no matter what time the passage is made the wonders of it may be well seen. This gateway is where the Arkansas river breaks through the Sangre de Cristo--Blood of Christ--range of mountains and from its depth and length is noted.
At one place the walls approach so close that a bridge swung from the rocks above is required to carry the road over the water until the canyon again widens. After we were through four more trains followed; so that for days the Gorge echoed with the roar of continuous travel.
At last outside the canyon-walls the country opened, but still we were environed by mountains.
