Update: The peaks have been named! Learn more here.
There is a proposal to commemoratively name two unnamed thirteen thousand foot peaks that straddle the border of Dolores and San Miguel Counties between Navajo and Elk Creek Basins after two internationally-prominent American mountaineers, Charlie Fowler and Christine Boskoff.
Charlie Fowler and Chris Boskoff were residents of Norwood, Colorado at the time of their tragic deaths during an alpine climb in Tibet almost ten years ago. In 2006, the two climbers were caught in an avalanche while attempting to climb the Genyen Massif in Sichuan Province, China. Part of the attraction of the peak naming proposal is the proximity of the peaks to each other, symbolizing the partnership in life and death of Charlie Fowler and Chris Boskoff, and that proposed Boskoff Peak can be seen from the Town of Norwood where they resided.
The proposed Fowler Peak and Boskoff Peak are located in the Uncompahgre National Forest near Navajo Basin & Elk Creek Basin and the Wilson Range, approximately 10 miles southwest of Telluride and five miles northwest of Lizard Head Pass on Colorado 145.
We are still determining the best strategy to get the peak naming accomplished, but realize we will need support to make milestones with the Colorado State Government. Please help us by taking this short survey to let us know whether or not you are in support of the Fowler-Baskoff peak naming proposal.
