Album caption and index card: Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.

They are very nearly of equal height, Gray being 14,341 feet and Torret 14,336. From peak to peak the distance is nearly a mile, and through this saddle is a "pass" from Georgetown to the mining towns on the Blue River. The trail runs up the long ridge toward Grat, and then turns to the right. Its course can be seen by looking sharply where the snowbanks cut across it.
