TENNESSEE PASS! A Continental Divide Pass From Leadville to Minturn (January 28, 2006)
Tennessee Pass My buddy Scott and I took a drive from Leadville towards Tennessee Pass, which is part of the Contintental Divide. This sign is right at the entrance of Ski Cooper, a small Leadville-run ski area.
At the summit (across the street from Ski Cooper), is a parking lot for the Colorado Trail. Scott needed to use this snow-covered bathroom. ;)
Colorado Downhill on the Eagle County (north) side, there is a vast and beautiful area known as Eagle Park, that offers beautiful views of the surrounding Rocky Mountains. In the winter, it is a very popular area for snow shoeing, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. Notice the snowmobile tracks behind Scott!
Rocky Mountains I've got a very good feeling this will be a great place to visit when I'm doing my fall foliage photography! Look at all of those aspens! :)
Snow Snow Nearby was a overlook and rest area that was pretty much snowed in. I grabbed a big boulder of snow and threw it up in the air! :p)
Eagle County, Colorado On the Eagle County side, a bridge crosses over Piney Gulch and offers some stunning Colorado views throughout! I plan to return to this very spot to do more photography when it's warmer! :)
Eagle County, Colorado I actually took this picture while driving downhill! :)
Here are my other Colorado pass pictorials:
  • Cottonwood Pass, Independence Pass, Dallas Divide
  • Monarch Pass, Hoosier Pass, Wolf Creek Pass
  • Wilkerson Pass, Trout Creek Pass, Eisenhower Tunnel (I-70)
  • Lizard Head Pass, Poncha Pass
  • Colorado Around one of the bends on the Eagle County side, I got a shot of these snowy cabins. Brrrrrrr!
    Honda Accord Special thanks to my Honda Accord for making it throughout the snow-packed areas of Colorado. I actually got stuck momentarily in the Mayflower Gulch trailhead on the way back (near Fremont Pass), but we got her out okay. ;)
