Mount of the Holy Cross | Todd Harper

HX

Mount of the Holy Cross was named for the distinctive cross-shaped snowfield on the northeast face.[6] Under USDA Forest Service administration, the mountain was proclaimed "Holy Cross National Monument" by Herbert Hoover on May 11, 1929. The monument was transferred to the National Park Service in 1933.[7] In 1950, it was returned to the Forest Service and lost its National Monument status—the number of visitors to the mountain and the nearby "Pilgrim's Hut" had waned, and the expense of full-time staff could not be justified. ~ wikipedia
