Elk Range

Elk Range (82J)

The Elk Range forms the Continental Divide from just east of Elk Pass, south to Weary Creek Gap south of which the High Rock Range forms the Divide. Geologically, there does not seem to be much significance to the boundary between the High Rock Range and the Elk but topographically there is a change. In the Elk Range to the north the mountains form more of a continuous wall whereas to the south in the High Rock Range the mountains are generally separate entities with passes and cols beween them.
