What is the 25-Mile Isolation List?

Just as 2000' is an important prominence threshold and 14000' an important elevation threshold, 25 miles is the magic number that gives a peak a spot on an isolation list. This page contains those peaks with 25 miles of isolation which are in the U.S. State of Wyoming. But what is isolation anyway? Isolation is how far a peak is from the nearest higher one. Understandably, isolated peaks are often also high in elevation, are very topographically prominent, or, in some cases, both. Wyoming is something of an exception as, although the state's highest and most prominent peak is also its most isolated, many of the peaks on this list are not on the Wyoming 2KPs page, and some aren't even on the Wyoming 1KPs page, and several peaks are under 9000' in elevation with one, even, under 6000'.

Contained below is a table containing the peak's name--which has a hyperlink to the peak page--as well as its isolation, elevation, and topographical prominence. So, without further ado, the Wyoming
isolation list.
