Forest Service officials say an American flag erected on a mountain near Frisco after the Sept. 11 attacks may be removed.
Hikers had erected a flag at nearly 13,000 feet on Peak 1 to remember victims of the 2001 attacks, but unknown vandals burned it last year.
Forest Service officials have allowed a replacement flag to fly on Peak One, but now they're looking to remove Old Glory without inciting a backlash.
Dillon District Ranger Rick Newton said he has trouble justifying a permanent memorial on the peak. Instead, he supports a memorial possibly in town.
