The other Mt Marcy

I currently live in Colorado but will be moving to Tupper Lake after our house sells here to be closer to family and still live in a forested, mountain area. (We are nomads and have lived all over including PA,ME, and now CO) I will be hitting the High Peaks and numerous other places in the Daks when I arrive. But woe is me, I'm stuck hiking in the Rockies until that happens.

While the NY high point Mt Marcy get all the attention for summits that go by that name, there is a fairly obscure 13,490' Mt Marcy in Colorado that's buried among endless peaks rising above 13,000 feet in the Sangre de Cristo Range. I live in the Sangres and am lucky enough to hike this area regularly. Last week I decided to climb 3 peaks in the middle the Sangres.

Given that the Daks will be my home in the future, I was drawn to climb Colorado's Mt Marcy. For anyone interested below is a link to my trip report and many photos to see what the much higher, lesser known Mt Marcy is like.

Photo opportunities are very rare. There just isn't much to see.
