Abajo Peak, 11,360 feet, is the highest in the Abajo Mountains, which are also known as the Blue Mountains due to the bluish hue they have when viewed from a distance. The Abajo Mountains were named by the Spanish in the 1700s (abajo means lower). Abajo Peak provides an outstanding panoramic view of southeastern Utah, Colorado, and the Four Corners region where Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico meet. Another route through these mountains is the one detailed in. Fall is a great time to visit because of the aspens’ changing colors.
