2006-2007 marked the bicentennial of Lieutenant Zebulon Montgomery Pike's expedition up the Arkansas River & down into Mexico (then New Spain.) 

 

I participated in several events throughout the fall & winter 2006-2007 to celebrate this.  Putting together costumes & learning the music of the time was a major part of it.  I also made a recording of songs of Pike's era with my friends Don Richmond & Rex Rideout.

 

There were many events throughout southeastern Colorado in January 2006 that went into 2007.  The main site to find out all things Pike is The Pike Page from the Santa Fe Trail Association.  Other sites which I used as a resource or other folks involved in this project were:
