sticker my buddy got at history Colorado

Postby GeorgiaTyler » Thu Dec 05, 2013 12:11 pm

Since I took my good bud up his first 14er he bought me a 14er sticker at History Colorado and we couldn't figure something out on the sticker. Maybe y'all can help. all the 54 14ers are listed very small around a compass looking thing. In bold around the outer edge (featured I guess..) Are: Mount Massive (upper left) Mount Harvard (upper right) Blanca Peak (lower right) and La Plata Peak (lower left) circling the compass, if I were good at posting pics I would. Anyone know why these peaks are more prominent? Thx for input

Well, those are the highest peaks after Elbert... does Elbert stand out on it? If so I'd guess it's just highlighting the five highest.

I think I've seen the same thing. Mount Elbert is in the Center. It's the tallest. Massive, Harvard, Blanca, and La Plata are around the edge because they are #2 through #5 in elevation.

Ok, I guess I should have thought of that but Elbert is tiny around the middle and not showcased at all. If I get time i'll post a picture.

Actually, these are the peaks that won out to Pikes Peak for an alien landing station. These plans were guarded once they saw the reaction to Pikes Peak plans.
