The Wet Mountains are a small range of mountains in southern Colorado named for the amount of snow they receive in the winter. There are three variant names of this range: Cuerno Verde, Greenhorn Mountains, and Sierra Mojadas. Most of the range is contained in Custer County, and run approximately from Highway 50 to Walsenburg.
The tallest mountain is known as the Greenhorn, which has multiple peaks, the highest of which reaches 12,346 feet. Greenhorn Peak, St Charles Peak and North Peak all go above tree line. Though the mountains do not have high elevations as do many in the state (Colorado has many peaks over 13,000 and 14,000 feet). The range provides the eastern boundary of the Wet Mountain Valley, bordered on the west by the Sangre de Cristos.
Elevation: 12,346 feet
