There are five peaks above 14,000 ft that rise above the town: Sherman (14,007), Mt.Bross (14,172 feet), Mt. Lincoln (14,286 feet), Mt. Democrat (14,148 feet), and Mt. Cameron (14,238 feet). There are many 12 and 13ers as well! There are many old mines around the area and a few that are still operational. In their day, they would produce over $1,500,000 in minerals annually. Their colorful names include the Orphan Boy Mine, Dolly Varden Mine, Sweet Home Mine, Little Daisy Mine, and London Mine.


There are many great things to see and do in and around Alma. The Bristlecon Pine Scenic Area is at the base of Mt. Bross and is a great place for photographers, artists, and those that just love hiking and taking in the views. Bristlecone Pines are native to the Rocky Mountains and are thousands of years old. For those that want a driving adventure, take a drive up Buckskin Gulch all the way to Kite Lake. Or, fly-fish on the Middle Fork of the South Platte River or fish Montgomery Reservoir. So much to do and see!


Come and experience the beauty and the history of Alma, Colorado and be surrounded by Mountains ranging in heights of over 14,000 ft. Alma is an easy 90 minutes from Denver and Colorado Springs. Just the drive by itself is worth making and when one adds this music experience along with it, well, it becomes a musical adventure.
