Pikes Peak is Colorado Springs’ most prominent feature. It’s an ever-present beacon on the horizon, inspiring and reminding people of the natural beauty surrounding it. The mountain was once called Tava, or Sun Mountain, by the indigenous Ute people. Today it goes by the nickname America’s Mountain. By any name, the mountain dominates the region’s geography and draws people from near and far.
David Siegel grew up at the base of Pikes Peak in Manitou Springs. Now he is the executive director of the Ent Center for the Arts at UCCS (University of Colorado Colorado Springs), as well as an arts advocate and musician who performs with several ensembles in and around town. As the host of this Creative Stay in Colorado Springs, David has curated an itinerary for a relaxing getaway that engages the arts, the outdoors and unique opportunities at their intersection. You’ll experience Pikes Peak close up, far away and on top, and you’ll enjoy a relaxing, artistic retreat in the mountain’s shadow.
With that, we’ll let David guide you in his own words.
