Colorado prominence peak

Coming in at #61 on the top 100 Colorado prominence peak list, Tanks Peak is not one of those giant 14'ers that Colorado is so famous for. It stands at 8717' tall with 2267 feet of prominence.
Some of those who have made the effort to get to this out of the way peak are:
Bob Martin
John Kirk

Since this is not a mountain page, but rather a collection of pics that I took on my visit, I will not be giving route or access directions. Suffice it to say, it is very close to Dinosaur National monument and that alone made this one worth a visit by myself and my wife. I can tell you that there were miles of dirt roads and several of very rough jeep 4WD road on the way I went. There may be a better way than the way I went so if you are interested in this one, study the maps. I came in from the south.

It would be great if you'd convert this to a mountain page. I'm afraid it will get lost in the shuffle as an album.

Pretty please???

Sarah, you make a good point. I really put this together for my wife who then puts them into a journal of sorts since she was my partner on the trip and elected to stay with the truck and protect it from the crazy cattle. I will promise you that I will put a mountain page up for it in the near future.

I find it very remarkable how you move so quickly around the state of Utah! And now, you have moved into the next battle ground, Colorado. Nice album man!
