Drove through Buena Vista then past Mt Princeton, 14,000 feet. Travelled along the Arkansas River then up Independence Pass (named by prospectors who defied the local law) from Twin Lakes to the top at 3703 metres. Thick snow everywhere. Glad we had boots and anoraks. Climbed the last 5 metres for ...
