Independence Pass Photo For Sale Online

Aspen, CO

Independence Pass, at 12,095 ft, is in central Colorado. It is best known as The Continental Divide; the Rocky Mountain chain of ranges begins in Canada and ends in New Mexico. Independence Pass lies between the upscale Ski town of Aspen and the charming town of Twin Lakes, Colorado. It follows along highway 82 beginning on the Utah, Colorado border and ends with a decision whether to turn left and go to Leadville for some great Mexican food or to turn right and go to visit Bueana Vista and soak in one of the many hot springs of that area.

The drive over Independence Pass is always a stunning journey as it rises over the Rocky Mountains with breath taking views as though you were on top of the world. The pass is always closed in the winter, because 20 foot snow drifts, it reopens, with great celebration, on Memorial Day week end. You can purchase this image on a throw pillow, shoulder tote bag, metal, acrylic or matted & framed to add a little personality to your home.
