Fisher's Peak

Fisher's Peak, the basalt-capped mesa rising to an elevation of 9,600 feet just south of Trinidad, was most likely formed by horizontal lava flows more than one million years ago. There is no geological evidence to support the widely-held notion that the peak itself was once an active volcano.

Fisher's Peak is sometimes shown as Raton Peak on early maps. Well into the late 1870s, the two names seem to have been used interchangeably.

It is said that Fisher's Peak is named after Captain Waldemar Fischer, cavalry officer who lead his troops through the Raton Pass area on their way to Santa Fe. As the story goes, Fischer became lost and and decided to climb the mesa to get his bearings. Trinidad-area settler and colorful character "Uncle Dick" Wootton claimed to have accompanpanied Fischer on the climb, but later admitted they had "found the weather too hot and sat in a shady place instead." In any event, Wooten, a mountain man who had lived in southern Colorado for decades, would have had no trouble giving Fischer directions, so the climb became unnecessary.
