The image shows five men on Mosquito Pass experiencing problems with one of their vehicles, which appears to be stuck or broken down. Mosquito Pass, 13,187 feet in elevation, was at twenty-one miles the shortest route to Leadville from the mining camps of Park County. The Pass was heavily traveled with the new strikes in Lake County in 1878, but was a dangerous route during the winter months. A toll road was constructed by the Mosquito Pass Wagon Road Company by 1879. Construction of a rail line in 1882 replaced most of the traffic over the Pass.
