Is this accurate?

Post by spong0949 » Thu Dec 19, 2013 8:07 pm

I'm trying to put together a front range panorama with peak names. This was taken at Union Res. in Longmont. I know there are lots of people here who have encyclopedic knowledge of these peaks. Can anyone confirm if these are labelled accurately? Sorry the font looks so small. If you click on the pictures it will show the larger version of each. Thanks in advance!

Man I really gotta get up to the IPW.

Ok - St. Vrain mountain. Thanks a lot guys! My only other unsure one was that little guy between Isolation and Alice in photo 3 - Tanima Peak. I'd never heard of it and was hard to find pictures/info on.

Interesting this topic comes up. I live a little north, in Loveland. From my house, you can see two peaks beyond the foothills, just north of where storm peak drops down, in the gap between Longs and the Mummy range. Sometimes, I've been certain they were Hallet and Otis, other times, I've thought McHenry's and Powell, but then I think those would definitely be covered by the Longs/ Storm saddle. My specific vantage point is from I-25 and US34. The southern peak looks like an ocean wave moving south, and the northern peak is a symmetrical cone. It's obviously on the divide, with a glacier between them, facing me. In my OCD, I've scoured topo maps and photos, but I've never figured it out or found the correct camera angle. From the OP's photos, the angle would be from about 20 miles straight north, but the north end of the photo stops short of Longs.

Anyone?

iholdthepain, here is the rest of the panorama past longs/meeker. Does this show what your looking for?

No, Twin Sisters lines up right in front of Longs/Meeker from my viewpoint, and there are 2 peaks on the divide that rise up beyond the foothills, just north of Storm. They don't show up in your photo. Maybe I'll take a photo and post it later.

Nice shots, Aaron! Were you right at Union Reservoir and shooting with a large zoom?

Thanks Bill! Yes right on the east shoreline zoomed in 200mm. I'll post the finished shot when I'm done.
