On our recent trip to Gunnison National Forest, the highlight (for me) was ascending American Flag Mountain. Yeah, we used our side-by-side and ATVs but it counts. 😉
At 12,713 feet high, the mountain is aptly named as you can see and provides amazing 360-degree views of the surrounding landscape. We were in no rush to start the trip down and back to camp as no matter which direction you looked, you had to stop and soak it all in.
Such was the case with my son. He walked out to the cliff’s edge and just stopped and for the longest time just looked… and looked… and looked. I have some better pics to share in the future showing the view from up there but this one really appeals to me the most.
