Pareamoot: Ute for Grand Mesa
From this point, the Pareamoot Mountains were in full view ;
they ranged from the north, and terminated in an abrupt
declivity on the western side of Grand Eiver, opposite to the
mouth of the Uncompagre. They were described to me as
abounding in game, and well timbered; on their plateaux, are
fine lakes filled with excellent fish, rich meadows, abundant
streams, every natural attraction, in fact, to induce settlement.
Our guide, Felipe, had spent three years in them, trapping
and hunting, and said that there is no richer country on the
continent. These mountains are not laid down on any map.
