Photographer's Note

This is another photo taken during our time working on Mount Massive with the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative. Mount Massive (14,421 feet / 4,396 meters) gets its name because of its long ridge, which contains multiple summits and spans almost 3 miles (5 kilometers) in length.

This photo was taken during a hike along the Main Massive Trail, about 3 miles from the ridge. Note that the hills in the background are not part of the main summit, as they are significantly lower in elevation. Shortly after the area shown in this photo, a series of switchbacks begins, and only after completing this section do the higher summits appear into view.
