Photographer's Note

TrekEarth members: click on the photo for a larger view.

I stitched this panorama together from seven vertical shots, however I did crop out much of the extremities for this final view.

This is a view of the North Sawatch Range as seen from Mount Massive. I took the shot from an elevation of about 13,000 feet (3,962 meters).

The name "Sawatch" comes from the Ute language, one of the native dialects from this region, and means "blue earth" or "water at blue earth". The highest peak in the range pictured is the Mount of the Holy Cross, at 14,005 feet (4,269 meters).
