This panorama is from the main viewpoint along the short trail beside Independence Pass, looking eastwards down the valley of the North Fork of Lake Creek towards La Plata Peak and Twin Peaks, with Colorado's highest summit Mount Elbert a little way north, and several other 14ers to the south. In the other direction the mountains are slightly less high, as the land slopes down gradually, and the main road across the pass (Highway 82) reaches the ski resort of Aspen after 20 miles.
