Gotta think it's more Oyster Bay than Hyde Park but who knows?

OK, so over the little hill there is RMNP, and below the summit is a lake named after the geological formation it's in. Six mile hike to said lake. Otherwise, um... I would think some locals might know this.

66.2 miles from Mt. Evans. Triangulate away! (Or whatever triangulation is called from 2 points...)

Last hint: when I said a local might know this I meant local to me. (The "C" doesn't stand for Carson.) I guess if someone doesn't get it tonight we could move on?

Looks like looking at Trail Ridge from the north side. Taking the hint of Roosevelt and the look of the pic.
