Within the Rocky Mountain peaks live the stories of fabled golden cities, long-lost Confederate treasure, and shape-shifting spirits. Welcome to Mount Lincoln, one time home to dinosaurs, Ute Native Americans, bandits, bounty hunters, trappers and miners. Mount Lincoln is the eighth-highest summit of the Rocky Mountains of North America and the U.S. state of Colorado. Located in Pike National Forest, the mountain is 14,293 feet in elevation and is the highest summit of the Mosquito Range and the eleventh-highest summit in the contiguous United States. Does Mount Lincoln hold mystical powers? Stand on the locus of it's relatively easy to climb peak and then decide. A locus is a center of activity, attention, or concentration. In democracy the locus of power is in the people. Abraham Lincoln is often referenced as the people's president consequently I felt it appropriate to point out the locus of activity on Mount Lincoln, its summit.
