It's looking good! Was Emma related to Erin, by any chance?
Thanks. Check my overview section for the detailed answer to that. It's possible that Emma was related to Erin -- Erin's family has been in Colorado for some time -- but we haven't been able to confirm it.
Very nice job on this page! Pretty mountain!
Beautiful page! Checked on Emma Burr and found this link. Emma P. seems to have been a poet, but I have no idea from where she came ....
Beautiful photos as usual!!
Thank you for the compliment!
Great page, thumbs up! So Emma and Big Agnes remain mysteries. I wonder if they knew there are mountains named for them? Maybe we'll stumble on the answer some day.
I noticed after checking out your page that there's a Little Agnes Mountain near Big Agnes. But I betcha most people think that whoever Agnes was, she must have been a large woman! Since mountains can't be named for you until you die, I don't imagine they could have known...
Very nice Ryan. I remember you mentioning you were going to try out Emma Burr...
Hey Jon, I remember how surprised I was in 2001 when I was scanning the list of peaks in the back of the Roach 13er book and saw that peak's name. Emma Burr had been on our list ever since!
Ryan, another good one. How's the Fall season been for you lately? I've been out climbing everything i can in the LCW, I should say McCurdy Park. I have discovered some hidden gems in there and soon will post a few here on SP. Typically I would just add on to my existing pages but i think these unknown summits are deserving of their own page. Let me know, next time ya'll head out to Twin Eagles. later...
Hey Kane, it's been good. Mount Adams was definitely the highlight, but we've had some other good trips including The Castle and Greenhorn Mountain. Last week we were in LCW doing the Alphabetizer again, but this time we included Kenosha Peak. I need to check out other places in LCW pretty badly, though, because I've still barely scratched the surface of that lovely area.
Very good pictures and first-rate text. Thanks for posting another of your excellent pages!
Excellent page w. nice photos.
Thanks for the vote!
My pleasure. Thanks for a great page.
