Let There Be Light
Mount Wilson is a fourteen thousand foot peak in the Lizard Head Wilderness. It is the highest peak in the San Miguel Range of the San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado.
The peak was named for A. D. Wilson, a topographer with the Hayden Survey. He was in the first ascent party, which climbed the peak on September 13, 1874, via the south ridge (a difficult route, not often climbed today).
