Bald Mountain

This is the bald mountain just up Prospect Creek from Mountain Village, Telluride, Colorado. In the wintertime, this summit is in-bounds hike-to terrain of the Telluride ski area and can be descended on ski, snowboard, or perhaps even sled! :-)

In the summertime, this summit provides a breath taking 360 degree view of the Telluride region summits, Mount Wilson, Wilson Peak, El Diente, Lizard Head Peak, Mount Sneffels, Palmyra, and countless others.

Be sure to check it out regardless of season....and then climb one of the real mountains in the region.

    Be prepared for any weather. We got stuck in a downpore even though the weather mad said nothing of rain.
