What do YOU say? How do you pronounce 'Kebler Pass?'

This time - we're searching for the proper pronunciation of a mountain pass - in Gunnison County - near Crested Butte - starts with a K.

NEXT WITH KYLE CLARK - Gwen emailed us at Next to ask for the pronunciation of Kebler Pass:

"It's a lovely road that heads west out of Crested Butte. I believe the correct pronunciation is like the cookie maker."

Kebler Pass is a mountain pass in Gunnison County near Crested Butte. Keebler is a company where elves bake coconut dreams and chocolate chip cookies. 

We asked Western State professor Dr. Jonathan Coop, who studies the trees on the pass.

"The classic is Keebler Pass, but the Keebler Elves had nothing to do with this pass, so Keh-blur Pass. Kebler is what it's called," Coop said.

KEH-BLUR. Not KEE-BLUR.
