History of the Famous Mosquito Pass by Norma L. Flynn
Forty years after it first appeared, this work is being reprinted in 1999 for a new generation of readers via the cooperation of the author and the Park County Historical Society. Ms. Flynns extensive research and skillful writing have weathered the years quite well, with very few updates needed.
The pack-burro race noted on the last page was replaced by two races now run from both Fairplay and Leadville to the top of Mosquito Pass and back. The North London Mill is crumbling; and its assay office is now in the South Park City Museum in Fairplay. The Mosquito Pass Stage House has also been moved to South Park City.
Some old business advertising has been added at the front and back of the booklet. These ads (dating from 1879-188 1) provide an interesting insight into a few of the establishments that served Mosquito Pass travelers and the hardy citizens of South Park and Leadville well over a century ago.
The Mosquito Pass Road remains a memorial to the tough old-timers who led the way for all of us who proudly live in Colorados high country. (5.5" x 8.5" 50 pages)
