San Juan Range -- beyond the shadow of a doubt. Second choice would be a tie between the Elks, the Gores, and the Crestones.
As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM

The massive expanse of the San Juans is amazing to me.. The peaks are beautiful, the range as a whole is giant, and it just makes me miss it every time I see pictures from trips out there. I have not climbed 14ers in any of the other ranges, but having grown up in the Front Range, it will always hold a special place to me.. So the Front Range is a close number 2!

I am torn between the Gores and the Ten Mile. I chose the Ten Mile because I "play" in them a lot more than in the Gores. I am lucky though because I get to watch the sun rise over the Front Range light up the Ten Mile and watch the sun set behind Buffalo in the Gores.

I love the San Juans for the same reasons. The Front Range is close my # 3 after the Sawatch.

What no Mummy Range? I want my Mummy :cry:

Seriously. I picked Sawatch. When I traveled there for the first time this year, I was awe struck. Seeing the prominence of all those high peaks in row, almost made drive off the road. I am seriously considering next summer starting at one end and hiking the entire range.
