Taken in Denver in 1963. I had ID'ed the location some time ago (but as was true for several other slides in this thread, I had never posted as such); but, I just now ID'ed the date.

Realized by visual comparison (don't know why I didn't earlier) that these 2 slides of the Regal Vale and Regal Pass were taken on the same date in 1963 in Denver as that of the Regal Ring.
