PALMER LAKE -Palmer Lake is a beautiful sheet of water, 52 miles south of Denver. This point was formerly called "Divide"-a very significant and appropriate title, as on the crest of this summit the waters divide, flowing northward into the Platte, which empties into the Missouri, and southward into the Arkansas as it wends its way to the Mississippi. This lake was named in honor of General Palmer, the projector and builder of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, recognized as the most beautiful scenic line in the world.
ELEPHANT ROCK-This is one of the most remarkable freaks of Nature in the Rockies. Nature's mysterious forces have here fashioned out of rock a gigantic likeness of an elephant, which is so true to life as to be actually startling in realism, and one might imagine its having been transplanted from India's jungles.
COLORADO SPRINGS-The city of sunshine and broad streets, nestling at the foot of Pike's Peak, whose hoary head is seen rising into the clouds in the distance. It is a beautiful city of 30,000 people, 6,000 feet above the sea. In the immediate foreground of the picture is the Alamo hotel, and across it to the west, wrapped in the embrace of rugged foothills, is the entrance to the sublime Garden of the Gods and picturesque Manitou, the paradise of the tourist. Many of the most famous scenic trips of the Rockies are made from this point, including the Crystal Park Auto Drive, Cheyenne Canon, Seven Falls, Helen Hunt's grave, etc.
