The Rocky Mountains extend from central New Mexico to northeastern British Columbia, a distance of about 2000 miles. They form part of the Continental Divide, which separates rivers draining into the Atlantic or Arctic oceans from those flowing toward the Pacific Ocean. The Arkansas, Colorado, Columbia, Missouri, Río Grande, Saskatchewan, and Snake rivers rise in the Rockies.
Twin Lakes  Colorado  at the base of Independence Pass , the other base is Aspen Colorado.
The Southern Rockies, which include the system's broadest and highest regions, extend from central New Mexico, through Colorado, to southern Wyoming and encompasses Rocky Mountain National Park. They include the Sangre de Cristo and Laramie mountains and the Front Range, in the east, and the San Juan Mountains and the Sawatch and Park ranges, in the west.
The Southern Rockies include the chain's highest mountain, Mount Elbert in the fall.
