Led by Dr. Paul Myrow of Colorado College, this trip will visit Horseshoe Mountain, northwest of Fairplay. This glacial cirque reaches a height of 13,898 feet and is among the 100 highest peaks in Colorado. The cirque is unique in that the steeply dipping strata, tilted during the Laramide Orogeny, are preserved in contrast to the nearby Mosquito and Sawatch mountain ranges in which most of the sedimentary cover rocks were eroded. RMAG member-only trip.
