Mount Antero

Mount Antero is a Colorado 14er located in the central Sawatch Range named for Chief Antero of the Unitah band of Utes. The mountain itself is prized for its gemstone deposits and has one of the highest concentrations of aquamarine in the country. There are several active private mining claims being exploited on Mt. Antero and surrounding peaks. Expect many hikers and there's always a chance to find a gem of your own. The peak is due south of the more visually prominent Mount Princeton.
