Re: Very cool

Bison Peak is near Tarryall Reservoir in the Retirement Range. I recommend John & Jennifer Roach's book on summit hikes in the Lost Creek Wilderness. I'm heading there this weekend, in fact. Happy hiking!

Awesome Shot!

This area is amazing. I was here on a cloudy and overcast day, and the overabundant rock formations made it even more eerie and Mars-like. Nice one!

Re: Awesome Shot!

Thanks for the feedback. I love these mountains. They may not be as grand as the 14ers around the state, but they make up for it with their...strangeness of rock formations.

Re: Nice shot!

Mark,

Here is more Summit Post information about Bison Peak.

This monolith in the photo is near the summit of Bison Peak.

From a geological standpoint, Bison Peak and McCurdy Mountain and others in the area are part of the same "uplift" that formed Pikes Peak. Amazing!

Keep hiking!

Re: Nice pic

This is one amazing part of Colorado. And the best part? No 14ers + very few trails to summits = NO BODY! My husband and I have hiked all day in this area without seeing another soul. Priceless!

Cheers!

Sarah
