The scenic Handies Peak Wilderness Study Area in Colorado is known for its mountains, multi-colored rock formations, diverse vegetation and vast, open vistas. The area is home to Handies Peak, which rises 14,048 feet over the area — plus 12 other peaks that are more than 13,000 feet, three major canyons, glacial cirques and three alpine lakes. This landscape makes Handies Peak WSA a perfect getaway for hiking, backpacking, camping, mountain climbing and photography. Photos by Bob Wick, BLM — mypubliclands.
