White Wilderness at 14,000 Feet
On April 10, 2009, Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar traveled back to Colorado in order to dedicate the Rocky Mountain National Park Wilderness Area. Colorado's newest area to be officially protected by the Wilderness Act will be nearly 250,000 acres, and includes the iconic 14,255-foot Longs Peak featured here.
Truly an amazing place that I feel fortunate to get to enjoy!
