141. “Polychrome Peak”

Officially passes though summit elevation might be less than 13,000'

PEAK MARKERS CURRENTLY BROKEN - SORRY!

Unfortunately, Google Maps decided to discontinue support for v2 of their API, which has resulted in the peak markers disappearing from my topographic maps. I'm working on a solution now and hope to have this fixed within a few weeks.
