Is this Mount Bailey? If not, what is the name of this prominent peak seen from Will-O-Wisp and the surrounding communities?

Thank you.

Miss Mary

Mount Bailey is a small "mountain" that is actually in Burland and I don't think you can see it from Will-O-Wisp. I think you are looking at Green Mountain.

If you are looking west, that would either be Mt. Rosalie (farther north) or Mt. Logan (farther south).

Both Mt. Rosalie and Mt. Logan go well above tree line. Green Mountain, on the far east end of the Kenosha Ridge to the south of Will-O-Wisp, doesn't.

It's Mt. Rosalie...it has a marvelous cone shape. Mt. Logan is south of Rosalie and has a big glacial cirque on the northeast side. I can see both from my house. Rosalie also has a little peak south of it called "Bandit Peak." We used to ride up there because supposedly the Reynolds gang buried a bunch of coins they stole from the stagecoach on Kenosha Pass before they got caught.

Thank you.

Miss Mary

You can not see Mt. Rosalie from Will-O-Wisp.

Thanks everyone! Right, this is not Mount Rosalie and trees go near the top and this peak sits to the south from WOW not west. I also know Rosalie by sight. Sounds like it is Green Mountain or Windy Peak. I can also check the Park County map.

I'll accept that. I think we have a winner.

Yep, it's Windy Peak. I live at the base of it, below the low lying clouds.

What is this, knowledge by popular vote??? Sorry, it's Rosalie!! And that's Bandit Peak to the left. There is most definitely an alpine area (the part covered with snow). The krummholtz consists of staggered groves of bent and twisted alpine fir and Englemann spruce that take advantage of slightly protected area up to 10,000 or even 11,000'. But that's okay, Mary, men know everything.
