Infobox image[edit]

Image:2007-06-30-evans-sum-lake01.jpg and Image:MtEvansCO.jpg seem to be competing for the infobox graphic. I personally think the first is of higher quality and better showcases Mt Evans, but it was reverted by the creator of the second with the line "Restored image that was replaced buy commercial photographer". It shouldn't matter that he is a commercial photographer, since he has released the uploaded image into the public domain. Anyone else have input on this? --MattWright (talk) 01:01, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

First Ascent[edit]

I can find no documentation to back up the claim that Judge Lunt was the first ascender of Evans, so I put citation needed. Who was Judge Lunt? Google tells me that there was a Horace G. Lunt, Harvard class of '70, who lived in Colorado Springs in 1890 and by 1893 shows up as a lawyer for the appelant arguing before the Colorado Supreme court. In 1895 he was confirmed as a judge in the Fourth judicial district of Colorado, and there is now a Judge Lunt park in Colorado Springs. I've found no references to him as a mountaineer.Douglas W.

Question - History Section[edit]

As I was reading about the history of Mt. Evans, I became confused with the following paragraph

"In 1895, 30 years after he was forced to resign as governor because of his part in the infamous Sand Creek Massacre and its subsequent cover-up, Colorado's legislature officially renamed the peak in honor of John Evans, second governor of the Colorado Territory from 1862 to 1865.[20]"

I do not know who "he" references when they talk about "he was forced to resign as governor." I'm assuming we are talking about Beirstadt because the article talks about it being renamed to Mt. Evans, but the prior paragraph is talking about the judge. I looked up prior governors of Colorado Territory and there is no mention of Beirstadt ever being a governor.

I'm obviously no history major, and we just recently moved to Colorado, but we are very interested in the the historical value of data presented. Is it possible for someone to please provide clarification?

Thank you in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tmac3144 (talkcontribs) 15:42, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
