These two new images, which are now available for sale in the landscapes gallery, were taken on Bison Peak last April. The view in the picture above was taken just below timberline, looking out toward Wilkerson Pass. The clouds out to the south and west were providing that nice hazy, layered effect for us to feast our eyes upon. It was really beautiful.
This next picture was taken up on the broad summit area of Bison Peak. This mountain seriously has the broadest summit of any mountain I've ever been on, and it is LOADED with all these cool rock formations. One could seriously spend a whole day just exploring this summit, and I have to say, it is the coolest summit I've ever been on . 14ers are nice an all, but if you really want to see some cool stuff, step down to a 12er and go check out Bison Peak. You won't regret it.
The Lost Creek Wilderness, including Bison Peak, is not too far of a drive from either Colorado Springs or Denver. If you're looking for a really fun, beautiful day hike, I can't recommend this one enough. I know I'll definitely be going back sometime.
