Most speakers support Mount Evans name change at public hearing
(Clear Creek County, Colo.) Mount Blue Sky is the perfect name for the 14'er known as Mount Evans, several people told the Clear Creek County Commission on Monday. "Blue Sky is a geographic description," said a woman named Katie during a public hearing on the proposed renaming of the mountain. "It recognizes the significance of a blue Colorado sky. It's not an East Coast or West Coast washed-out blue."
