Who named Quandary Peak in Colorado?
Story has it that early miners were perplexed about the identity of rock specimens found on Quandary Peak, thus its name. Or, because the peak was known by several names at one time, you might say others were perplexed about the peak's true name. The matter was settled when the Hayden Atlas listed it as Quandary Peak.
