MountElbert sm
Mount Elbert (indicated by A) is the highest peak in the Rocky Mountains at 14,440 feet (4,401 m). It is in the Mt Massive Wilderness Area, just about in the center of the rectangular shaped state of Colorado. The famous ski resort of Aspen is located just about 30 miles west of Mt Elbert.

Here’s Denver depicted in Starbucks coffee mug format. There is snow for the mountains in the forecast for Friday, prompting speculation that some of the Colorado ski resorts may open earlier than usual this year.
