What's in a Name?

Mount Ethel features a large summit at 11,924 ft., reached via the Lake of the Crags trail, with great views of surrounding peaks - including Mount Zirkel. She casts her shadow over Roxy Ann Lake every evening. Steamboat Pilot newspaper clippings describe the view from Ethel's apex: "From this vantage point, the Continental Divide really does resemble the backbone of the nation."
