"It is indeed fun to post some pictures in unexplored areas!"

So THAT is what makes Kansas so beautiful: their one-of-a-kind traffic signs! (YAWN!)

See the "bump" on the upper left? It flattens out right after its curve leaves the picture, & THAT was my actual high point. The shadowed rocks that you see blocked my view of Huron & the Three Apostles from that point, so I cane down here to get the shot.

This is the "lesser summit" that I mentioned a few pics earlier. Shot was taken from inside the high valley @ about 12,200'.

This shot was taken on the 4WD road back to our camp near Winfield.

The lesser summit just right of center hid Sayers from view when I was in the upper valley.

The shadowed point on the left is NOT a summit & is insignificant

Coming from the Clear Creek valley below as I plod upward along the South La Plata Trail. Brown's Peak (13,523', & just left of center) is the highest summit that can be seen from our camp closer to Winfield. I jave hiked to an elevation high enough to allow the 14er (14,003' & right of center) Huron Peak to be seen.

Chris Ghent,

You are correct about the distant mountains being Younts Peak and Thorofare Mountain

I took this pic of TRIPLE DIVIDE PASS, which is located in Glacier National Park, MT, back in 1978 or 1979 when I was on summer vacation with my father. I was either 16 or 17 at the time, & since he didn't want to take the hike with me, I did it by myself....completely forgetting that this was grizzly bear country that I was hiking in.
