Bunker Hill


Bunker Hill - Huerfano County - Colorado - 6,473 feet
A summit on I-25 (and on the adjacent railroad that was there first) between Walsenburg and Aguilar.
May have been named after nearby Bunker Hill and the Bunker Hill Number One Mine.
Although Santa Clara Creek is to the northwest and an intermittent creek in the Salado Creek watershed is to the south,
there is no discernable watershed divide or gap at Bunker Hill.

I-25 between Walsenburg and Aguilar, just north of the Huerfano / Las Animas County line.
