Name History (San Luis Peak)



Title: Naming of San Luis Peak

Entered by: 14erFred

Added: 05/14/2010, Last Updated: 05/14/2010

Sources: Hart, J.L.J. (1977). Fourteen thousand feet: A history of the naming and early ascents of the high Colorado peaks (Second Edition). Denver, CO: The Colorado Mountain Club.

The mountain's name, which first appeared on Hayden's 1877 Atlas of Colorado, is probably taken from the name of the valley that lies at its base. The valley was named by an early unknown Spanish explorer, the patron saint of whose village was San Luis.
