Monarch Pass - Chaffee County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Someone we all know and love seems to always see White-winged Crossbill here, but it ain't me. Monarch Park Campground and Fishing Ponds seem a good possibility, though I've only been here once.

Habitat: Spruce-Fir Forest
Directions: Monarch Pass is at the crest of the Continental Divide on Highway 50 between Poncha Springs and Gunnison. To reach the Monarch Park Campground and Fishing Ponds, go west on Highway 50 from Poncha Springs. The campground is less than two miles from the summit, on County Rd 231, south of Highway 50.
