“Pic of the Week”, January 22, 2021: Long’s Peak, Colorado

00 McIntosh Lake (1)

Long’s Peak is a prominent mountain in the Front Range of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. A “fourteener” (14,259-feet or 4346 m tall), it is the highest point in Boulder County and Rocky Mountain National Park.  It rises 9,000 feet (2,700 m) above the Great Plains.

Long’s Peak can be prominently seen from Longmont, Colorado,   These photos were taken from the trail around McIntosh Lake, which my wife and I walked with my son and daughter-in-law during a visit this past year.  The views of Long’s Peak are lovely!
