On the tribal lands of the Ute, Cheyenne, and Arapaho
ARTIST'S NOTES: At last, a peak named not for some obscure lawyer from the 1800s, but for the revered mountaineer Albert Russell Ellingwood, one of the founders of the Colorado Mountain Club. It’s not easy to walk in his footsteps, though: During March 1916, he climbed Mount Evans in snowshoes. He had learned mountaineering skills when he was a Rhodes scholar in England. When he returned to Colorado, he became known in the climbing community for seeking the most challenging and interesting routes and for making many first ascents. Ellingwood Point in this painting shines in the sunlight while Blanca Peak towers to the right.
