Its highest elevation is over 5,700 feet (1,737 m) in Colorado; in New Mexico it attains 5,239 feet (1,597 m); and in northwestern Cimarron County, Oklahoma, it reaches 4,973 feet (1,516 m), the highest point in that state.The summit is believed to have formed many millennia ago when black lava rock coated the top.
