Pike’s Stockade:
Located off Colorado Hwy 136, 4 miles east of the town of Sanford. Based on Zebulon Pike’s accomplishments in the realm of exploration, the re-built stockade is a symbol of the expansive nature of the United States during that era. 2006 marks the Bicentennial of Pike’s exploration into early Colorado and his eventual capture by Spanish soldiers from Santa Fe. It is a National Historic Landmark and is open Memorial Day – Early October. 719-379-3512
