Exposed: "Bare Summits"

Speaking of mountains and ol' timers, I hadn't been aware that one of the earlier names for Denali up in Alaska was "Dinsmores Peak" (or alternately "Densmores"). According to a post on "All Things Maine" blog, Maine native Frank Dinsmore was a prospector who had some mining claims in the Klondike, and became a fan of the relabeled Mount McKinley after seeing it from Lake Minchumina in 1889.
