Product Description

The most well-known of Colorado's 53 "fourteeners" (mountains exceeding 14,000'), Pikes Peak rises to 14,115' from a base of around 9000' just West of Colorado Springs. The mountain is named for Zebulon Pike, an explorer hired by Thomas Jefferson to explore the newly-acquired Louisiana Purchase. He was just 26 when his expedition first saw the mountain in 1806, which he named "Grand Peak." His party attempted to climb it, but was not equipped for the cold and turned back well before the summit. A carriage road up the mountain enabled the first automobile to reach the summit in 1901, the whole trip taking just over 9 hours. Now, racers in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb use a much-improved road to make the trip in under 9 minutes.

Pikes Peak is not just about driving: there is a bicycle race to the summit, a marathon up the Barr Trail, and a cog railway. In 1893, Professor Katharine Bates was so taken by the view from the top that she wrote the words to "America the Beautiful." She commented "All the wonder of America seemed displayed there, with the sea-like expanse."

The TinyMtn model of Pikes Peak encompasses 16 square miles of the mountain, including most of the Pikes Peak Highway and much of Barr Trail and the Manitou and Pike's Peak Railway. The Southwest-most corner of the model is just above Wilson Reservoir, but includes Bighorn Reservoir. Pikes Peak's south ridge is included all the way down to Sachett Mountain, around which the cog railway descends. Manitou Reservoir is just off the Northeast corner, but the model contains the valleys drained by North and South Fork French Creek. Glen Cove and Devils Playground, along the Northwest ridge, round out the model.

The Explorer series of TinyMtn models is designed to break our usual impression of mountains. We generally see mountains one at a time, from a distance, and from the ground. While all TinyMtn models give you a fresh perspective on any one peak, the Explorer series presents mountains in identical scale, and shifted up so that sea level is at the bottom of the base. Thus, when you set two Explorer models next to each other, you will immediately notice which is taller, which rises more from its base, which is more massive, and so on. Plus, all Explorer models come in full color, making them just that much more realistic.

Model scale is 1:100000
Model covers an area approximately 3.9 by 3.9 miles
Altitudes covered: 9204' to 14116'
There is no vertical exaggeration applied to this model. This is a true-to-life scale model of a real place.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here.

These models have been optimized for the above materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please tinymtnbiz@gmail.com and we'll do our best to fulfill your request.
