Fourteeners in Colorado's Mosquito Range
The Mosquito Range is a high mountain range in the Rockies of central Colorado which runs approximately 40 miles south from southern
Summit County. This range consisting primarily of granite was formed approximately 65 million years ago, and the northern end's U-shaped
valleys were created during Pleistocene Epoch glaciation. The Mosquitos are traversed in only two places by backroads: Mosquito Pass and
Weston Pass. The Pike National Forest covers much of the range.
