Mount Arkansas, Colorado - Elevation 13,795 Feet

A Colorado 13er and the "Mother Mountain" and Life-Giver To The Arkansas River

One of these months or years I plan to climb Mount Arkansas, a Colorado 13er located in Lake County and near Fremont Pass. Currently, I only have two decent photos of the mountain, both taken at Fremont Pass. This mountain is named Mount Arkansas for a reason. It is, in essence, the tallest mountain that lends its snowpack to give birth to the Arkansas River. A remarkable fact.

Plenty of snow on a sunny, winter day at Fremont Pass.

A stunning video of a guy climbing up the NNE couloir to the summit. Amazing!
