Colorado Mountains That Appear to Be More Than They Are

Colorado mountains provide a beautiful backdrop. But, have you ever looked at a mountain and thought, “Hey, that looks just like a ________!” Of course, you have.

These formations are known as mimetoliths, a topographical feature, stone or mineral that resembles an animal, human or plant.

Mountain Looks Like Indian and Horse Colorado

While wasting time on Facebook, I ran across a post on the World History and Ghost Town Photography page illustrating the sleeping Indian and his horse outside of Leadville, Colo. If you look closely at the photo above, you can clearly make out an Indian laying on his back. Notice the headdress at the very left. In the right of the photo, his horse lays next to him curled up sleeping.

This made me think of Kermit Mountain near Green Mountain Falls, Colo. As you’re driving north on Ute Pass (Hwy. 24) between Colorado Springs, and Woodland Park you can clearly make out Kermit. It’s like Jim Henson laid Kermit the Frog to rest near Pikes Peak. You see him don’t you?

Another “famous” Indian among the mountains is Ute Mountain near Cortez, Colo. In this photo, it’s difficult to truly make him out, but with the right amount of imagination, you can. The highest peak represents the Ute Indians arms with his head and headdress to the left. See it? It’s a tough one in this pic.

These are just a few that I ran across while searching the interwebs, but would love to check out more if you know any.
