We were fascinated to learn yesterday from The Gazette that the Spencer Penrose’s rustic-posh Cheyenne Mountain Lodge may rise from the ruins:

The Broadmoor hotel in Colorado Springs is adding a second rustic retreat — planning to build an 8,000-square-foot lodge and up to 20 cabins on top of Cheyenne Mountain where hotel founder Spencer Penrose’s historic lodge once stood.

Cloud Camp, as it will be known, will offer hiking, biking and other outdoor activities for individuals, families and corporate groups in a scenic setting on the mountain’s 9,200-foot summit, just west of the hotel.

We featured an old film and historic images of the Penrose’s “Honeymoon Lodge” alongside reader-submitted photos of what little is left since its demolition in 1976 back in 2010:
