Buffalo Peaks (West Buffalo Peak 13,326' - East Buffalo Peak 13,300')
Photos of Buffalo Peaks; My Inspiration Page To Climb This Mountain In The Future
|The Buffalo Peaks
The Buffalo Peaks is a well recognized mountain in central Colorado.
Some of its popularity derives from its position, where it can be seen from South Park
(Park County), much of northern Chaffee County and
from so many high peaks in the Sawatch and Mosquito Range.
I do plan to climb this mountain, hopefully in 2011.
(When I summit the Buffalo Peaks, I'll certainly update this page.)
I'm not sure which way I'll go about climbing the mountain at this time. There is one
interesting climb report
where the guy began in Park County. However, there does not seem to be a standard route, and some have
climbed via the Fourmile area on the Buena Vista side.
For now, a number of my photos of the Buffalo Peaks from various spots in Colorado.
Above is the view of the mountain from
Weston Peak, a 13er to the north in the Mosquito Range.

Two photos of the Buffalo Peaks from the vast and flat high elevation
region known as South Park. This is in Park County, west of Wilkerson Pass.

|Another popular view of the Buffalo Peaks
is on U.S. Highways 24 and 285, between Johnson Village and
Trout Creek Pass.
Adjacent are two shots of the mountain as one
drives through Chubb Park, en route to Trout Creek Pass.

|For those of us who live in Buena Vista, Nathrop and elsewhere in Chaffee County,
the most common view of the Buffalo Peaks are seen in these photos.
The Buffalo Peaks' two gently rounded humps stand very tall and proud to the north.
From top to bottom, these pictures were taken in:
