Re: Old Mike

That would be a great idea. Old Mike Peak (13,113') is the 3rd highest in NM, behind neighboring Wheeler and Walter, and is anywhere from 11-89 feet higher than the "three-headed monster" of Truchas Peak. I don't have any close-ups, but you'll see a couple of photos on the Wheeler Peak (NM) page that I submitted on Sept 07, 2004. One of them is a widescreen panorama that I shot from US-64 just east of Eagle Nest (this is where WB US-64 emerges from out of Cimarron canyon), the other is a single-frame photo with a green "milepost 281" sign. I do happen to have two identical photos (a panorama and a single-frame) taken from the same spot (about 4 or 5 miles S/SW of Eagle Nest) without the "milepost 281" sign. I actually live in Albuquerque and I'm originally from Questa (where my parents live), but next time I go up there, I hope to shoot some more photos of the Wheeler Peak group.
