Cathedral Rocks and Poudre Lakes at Milner Pass
Alt. 10,759 feet, Grand Lake – Estes Park Road, Colorado

Printed on back of card:
Milner Pass is a strange example of the Continental Divide lying far below Fall River Pass, the highest point on the Circle Tour. The Pass is extremely picturesque; the road runs through beautiful timber; passing the beautiful granite shafts called the Cathedral Rocks; reversing itself sharply skirting the Poudre Lakes which feed their waters to the Atlantic and running directly below its course above, crosses the pass and drops into a corridor like valley whose streamlet flows to the Pacific Ocean.
