This is the thread for your ideas on how the new reserve, inspired by the Rockie Mountains, should be named.

Please refrain from commenting on others' suggestions. We reserve the right to not choose any suggestions if we don't feel any live up to our expectations.

Looking forward to your ideas!

And Haust is the Old Norse word for 'to gather' or 'pluck' meaning harvest which is what we used to call Autumn and the Americans call Fall.

Golden Mountain

Reasons:
1. As a parallel to the Red Mountain (and the Red Mountain Mining District), where the Yankee Girl Mine, featured in the reserve, is situated in real life.
2. A reminder of the gold rush which generated the many mines in the Rocky Mountains, also featured in the reserve.
3. For the autumn colors of the reserve.
4. And, why not, for the trophy animals we are going to hunt there :)

-Goldenvale Pass
-Goldenvale Peak
-Goldenvale Gulch
-Goldvale Pass
-Goldvale Peak
-Goldvale Gulch

Quick edit:

I was inspired by the name Goldenvale for a few different reasons. The first being the fact that there are old gold mining shafts, settlements, tunnels... etc. Also the term "Golden" is related to the golden autumn aspen trees. Vale is a short term used to describe a valley. This map appears to have a very large valley where the mule deer, elk, and grizzlies will roam.
