UN13,336 from Willow Lake...

UN13,336 from Willow Lake Basin. July 12th, 2005. Notice the geology, very unique to have a mountain split horizontally with two distinct Elk Range types of rock. The red rock, resembles the Maroon Bells, and the white rock resembles the Capitol/Snowmass massif.

Rock porn

Thats what this is. Somewhere half way up this mountain is the contact between a tertiary quartz monzonite lacolith and the much older Pennsylvanian Maroon Formation sandstones. You might even be able to find some "cooked" sandstones along the contact... maybe small bits of quatzite or slate. Very cool mountain.
