Detailed Product Description
Colorado, 1952, 1st edition. 239 pp, b/w photos, maps. Green hardcover with no dust jacket. Near Fine. May have former owner's inscription and/or notes written in.

For 60+ years this has been the Colorado bible, listing the 200 highest peaks and all peaks of major interest.  For generations of outdoor enthusiasts, the authoritative source on Colorado's mountains has been Guide to the Colorado Mountains.
 
This edition compiles route descriptions for more hundreds of hiking and climbing destinations-peaks, passes, lakes, and trails. All the ranges are covered, with trails and peaks grouped by access and with new maps, photos, and a detailed index. 
 
'Colorado's mountains are the ganglionic center of the inland Rockies. Three-fourths of the nation's land above 10,000 feet lies within the state, whose average altitude is about 6800 feet. Generally speaking, it is mountainous everywhere west of a longitude line through Denver, with the ranges of greatest importance forming a thick, irregular L, reversed so that the horizontal fan runs west instead of east from the foot of the vertical. Big mesas, some as high as 10,000 feet, take up much of the space within the L. The summit altitudes of the mountains tend to a remarkable sameness: 54 of them have tops between 14,000 feet and the 14,431 foot altitude of Mount Elbert, and there are five times this number in the 13,000 foot class.'
