Mt. Garfield Receives Amazing Flag in Time for Memorial Day
Western Colorado's Mt. Garfield has a new American flag flying high at its summit, and it's nothing short of spectacular. Take a look.
Flags have flown high at this site for years. Over the decades, numerous people including Western Colorado's "Filthy Few," members of the Boy Scouts, and various citizens have placed flags at Mt. Garfield's summit. Some time ago, a new base with bolts appeared. People began to ask what was going on.
Now we know. The last flag I placed at this site was an $11 flag from the hardware store. It wasn't much, but it was the best I could afford and carry to the site by myself.
Behold this magnificent site which now keeps a watch over the valley.
The building of a new base and the transportation of this gigantic mast to the summit would have been a major undertaking. Kudos to all those involved.
Behold the new American flag! It is a masterpiece. The photo was sent to me by Dan Grisham. More details will be coming soon!
