Peak ID Question

Postby T HK » Sat Dec 31, 2011 6:22 pm

Hi all,

I was hoping to get some help IDing a peak that I want to climb. This picture was taken from the Winter Park ski area facing north or northwest.

I've also seen this peak form the top of Bierstadt. Is it Parkview Mountain or Mount Richthofen? Or am I hundreds of miles off? Thanks.

I think that is Parkview Mountain with the Never Summer Range to the right.If you haven't looked already here is some info
http://www.summitpost.org/parkview-mountain/152632 It must be quite a good view from there. :)

You're GOOD, planet! Google Earth seems to back that guess up quite nicely.
