List "Select Peaks of Greater Yellowstone" By wayfarer

Notes: This list is based on the book "Select Peaks of the Greater Yellowstone" by Thomas Turiano. This is an excellent book about the mountains of the Greater Yellowstone Region and the history of mountaineering there. The 107 peaks were selected because they possess a majority of the following characteristics: a commanding view from the summit; prominence from at least three directions; high relative elevation; a degree of elegance; distinction from surrounding peaks and environs; and an interesting or unique human or natural history. I have also taken the liberty of adding Mount Wood East as there seems to be some feeling that it is higher and more prominent than Mount Wood West.
