You need to reverse the names for Silver Eagle Peak and Bald Eagle Peak. Bald Eagle Peak is actually the 6259' peak east of Silver Eagle Peak (6241'). During the past half-century or so, the USGS made a clerical error when creating maps and accidentally reversed the names ofthese two peaks on the maps. Then online resources, such as Google Maps and Peakbagger.com, continued the error using the recent maps as a guide rather than the original correct information. Fred Beckey mentions this error in one of his books, but a great logical explanation and description has been provided by local peakbagger Mike Collins here. As a person dedicated to keeping SummitPost, and especially the "Alpine Lakes Wilderness"-related sections of SummitPost, as accurate as possible, I wanted to have you be aware of this issue to help your list maintain accuracy as well as to help limit the growth of a peak name error.

That is an interesting error. I looked back to the original list and it too had that error. I have just fixed it here though. I flipped two others based on information I found here on SP. On the original list Mt Hinman is sited as rank #3 with 7492 and Lemah Mountain is rank #4 with 7480+.
Looking at the postings on SP I found that Lemah mountain was sited here as 7512 feet which would put it above Hinman. If that information is incorrect you may want to notify both me and the creator of those pages.

Isolation is spelled incorrectly.

You need to give more love to Jeff Howbert. As it stands you talk about the creation of the list but no mention is made of the creator-- Howbert. Just a little link at the bottom to his site. Not only did he conceive of the parameters for the list but he had to do a lot of manual map work to come up with the list of peaks and the prominence and such. He should be mentioned prominently on the page since he came up with the idea and did all of the original work.

Thank you for the corrections. I make that typing error frequently io to oi. Not sure why. I have also added a bit more about Jeff Howbert. Let me know if you think it's appropriate.

I've attached pictures that you can use for Terrace Mountain, Alaska Mountain, and The Citadel. The pictures you have used for Bryant Peak and Alaska Mountain are not of the mountains themselves, but of views from the summit.
