Colorado peaks renamed for Broncos players

Mount Elbert? Actually, try Peyton Manning. Colorado governor John Hickenlooper announced Wednesday that he’s temporarily renaming 53 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks after Super Bowl–bound Broncos players.

Although the peaks will hold their NFL roster titles only through Super Bowl Sunday, the naming process has provided some humorous correlations between the mountains and players.

Mount Massive, at 14,421 feet, is named after the 340-pound Terrance Knighton, who is also called Pot Roast by his teammates. Longs Peak (14,255 feet) is reserved for sure-footed kicker Matt Prater.

Here are a few more notables from the governor’s list:

Quandary Peak (14,265 feet): Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. His coverage proves to be a quandary for opposing quarterbacks.

Mount Lincoln (14,286 feet): Winston Justice. His name and his humanitarian work in Uganda and Haiti reflect the name of this majestic peak.

Mount Harvard (14,420 feet): Zane Beadles. He, along with others on the offensive line, are as formidable as the line of Collegiate Peaks.

Capitol Peak (14,130 feet): Champ Bailey. Rated the most difficult peak to climb on 14ers.com.

Pikes Peak (14,110 feet): Joel Dreessen. A Colorado mountain for a Colorado State University Ram and the only player on the roster to graduate from a Colorado university.
