Collegiate Peaks Overlook - Buena Vista, Colorado

Now that's a big mountain ...
For so many people, their first impression of Buena Vista, Colorado is the stunning view of Mount Princeton as they come down Trout Creek Pass and into the valley. It seemed fitting that I would create a photo gallery that shows the mountain views from the overlook, known as the Collegiate Peaks Overlook. Enjoy!

Mount Princeton Colorado
Mount Princeton demands the admiration of travelers on Highways 24 and 285 as they approach Johnson Village. Oh yes. :)

Collegiate Peaks Overlook


December 31, 2006 - I visited the Collegiate Peaks Overlook, located on Highway 24 & 285 east of Johnson Village. The sign and turn off are on the north side of the road.
