“Stunning views!”
Review of Independence Pass

Independence Pass
Reviewed 7 December 2011

We drove through and couldn't help but stop & take pictures at several points along the way. As others have commented, the pass has some tight turns and can be a bit scary to drive, but the views are worth it. One of our favorite parts of Colorado.

The latter part of the pass, several miles before you enter Aspen, are a bit frightening. It is laughingly called a two-lane highway, but there are small segments where they couldn't even paint lane dividers, it is so narrow. Just enough room for an SUV, but you always hold your breath and cross your fingers that another car isn't coming around the corner in the opposite direction. Take it slow, don't be in a rush, and enjoy the scenery (at least when you're NOT driving!)!
