-Nystrom was named in 1877 by F.M. Endlich (on the Hayden Survey) for his wife's family.
-Nystrom is geographically of interest because at this point the Continental Divide leaves the crest of the range, entering the Great Divide Desert while the crest of the range skews into the Sweetwater drainage.
Thanks very much for adding this info, it is really appreciated, I couldn't find much info on the internet about this peak, basically relying upon my own experience to write the page. Your comments will be incorporated into the page with credit :-) Thanks again!
