The Collegiate Peaks Stunning Mountain Scenery In Buena Vista

Collegiate PeaksBuena Vista, meaning "good view" in Spanish, was not given this name for nothing!

Buena Vista and Chaffee County are well-known for being home to numerous "14ers" (mountains with a summit of 14,000+ feet in elevation) that rise like the mighty mountains they are. If you have ever visited or driven through the Arkansas Valley, you know from experience.

Below is a pictorial of some of the Collegiate Peaks and surrounding mountains of the area. The adjacent photo is part of the Mt. Princeton range, as it was taken near the site of Agnes Vaille Falls.
