Abstract

As certain mountains such as the San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado are imbued with meaning, they become peaks of identity, symbolic landscapes associated with community and cultural ideals. For communities near the San Juans, they symbolize idealized natural scenery, landmarks of home, recreation opportunities, and spiritual renewal. The symbolism is projected mainly through the display of icons and names on signs and government seals. - (SLD)
