Also shown (just before Mount Ouray) : Some of the 14,000+ foot high Collegiate Peaks, which are located to the far north northwest of Crestone, an hour's plus drive away from town. The Collegiate Peaks are the highest mountain chain in Colorado and the Rockies, The view from our cam shows parts of Mt Elbert (14,441 feet/4,402 meters) - the highest mountain peak in Colorado, Mount Yale (14,199 feet/4,328 meters), Mount Massive (14,429 feet/4,398 meters), and Harvard Peak (14,421 feet/4,396 meters). These peaks are shown behind and above where Poncha Pass is seen, where the Sangre De Cristo Mountains and San Juan Mountains meet, with the San Juan Mountains meeting The Collegiate Peaks just to the north northwest of there, near where Monarch Pass is located.
The San Luis Valley
is the largest and highest alpine valley in the world, and is on average 7,764 feet/2,367 meters above seal level.

Where it's noted above, about where the tour starts and ends - that's means for the entire tour itself. But since our cam is always running, it will start for you wherever the tour is at when you join it. But no worry, you will still see the entire tour as long as you stay with it. The full tour takes just over 12 minutes to see, and it's worth every minute!
