Considering how often I've driven over Fremont Pass, I really should have better pictures.This pass, located between Leadville and Copper Mountains, is another well-traveled Continental Divide pass via State Highway 91.

Standing at Fremont Pass, here is the view facing the eastern side of Fremont Pass. Mt. Arkansas (13,795 feet) is the tallest peak in view. Directly on the east side of the ridge,is the beginning of the Arkansas River watershed. The river forms just a few miles downhill at the confluence of anumber of tributary creeks.
