Climbing a high altitude mountain is both tiring and tough, it is mentally and physically demanding and you must be well prepared for the hike if at all you are going all the way to the summit. To the south of I-70, a park road goes to the top of Genesee Mountain, offering a 360-degree views from the 8,284-foot summit. At Barlow Pass, you’ll see mountain peaks on either side of you and a stream running alongside that make for a gorgeous setting and a feeling that you’re in another world.

Volcanic mountains are formed from eruptions of hot magma from the earth’s core. Two international Thinking Mountains Conferences, in 2012 and 2015, brought together scholars, community members and land managers from across Canada and the world. On a mountain, weather and the organisms that live there rapidly change as elevation increases.
That’s what the Army Recon mountain bike is to folding bikes. 6 of the 20 most important food crops originate in mountains (potatoes, maize, barley, sorghum, apples, tomatoes). Colorado has 54 peaks that soar to 14,000 feet and above, known locally as “fourteeners.” Summiting a fourteener is a true Colorado experience, but remember, there is 50 percent less protection from the sun at this altitude, so sunscreen is a must.
Due to snow, the road is typically only open the Friday of Memorial Day weekend through the first weekend in October, depending on weather conditions. This mountain range covers a total area of 108, 229 sq km of Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Mizoram and Tripura.
