dc.description.abstractPhotograph showing four men standing next to the summit marker on Mosquito Pass. The view is looking to the east toward Alma. Mosquito Pass, 13,187 feet in elevation, was at about twenty-one miles the shortest route to Leadville from the mining camps of Park County. The Pass was heavily traveled with the new strikes in Lake County in 1878, but was a dangerous route during the winter months. A toll road was constructed by the Mosquito Pass Wagon Road Company by 1879. Construction of a rail line in 1882 replaced most of the traffic over the Pass.
