This is a photograph of Climax Mine in Fremont Pass, Leadville, Lake County, Colorado. At the center of the photo is a wide field that has been stripped by mining. Some of the land is gray, rocky, and exposed. There is some mining equipment lying around the land. A road crosses by the field in the lower right with some cars driving on it. A large, craggy mountain range covered in trees surrounds the valley on all sides. This photograph can be found on page 104 of John Fielder's Book, Colorado 1870-2000 Second Edition.
