Geocache Description:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mount of the Holy Cross

Elevation: 14,005 ft (4,268.7 m)?
Prominence: 2,111 ft (643.4 m)?
Location: Eagle County, Colorado, USA
Range: Sawatch Range

Mount of the Holy Cross is the northernmost fourteen thousand foot mountain in the Sawatch Range, part of the Rocky Mountains in the US state of Colorado. It is located in the Holy Cross Wilderness near Holy Cross City (a ghost town) and in Eagle County. It was named for the distinctive cross-shaped snowfield on the northeast face. Under USDA Forest Service administration, the mountain was proclaimed "Holy Cross National Monument" by Herbert Hoover on May 11, 1929. The monument was transferred to the National Park Service in 1933. In 1950, it was returned to the Forest Service and lost its National Monument status — the number of visitors to the mountain and the nearby "Pilgrim's Hut" had waned, and the expense of fulltime staff could not be justified.
