12,183 ft, 25 degrees F, 40+ mph winds, 6 degrees wind chill. So worth it!
This was the view atop Trail Ridge Road, Colorado in Rocky Mountain National Park this morning soon after sunrise. The highest continuous paved road in the United States, an early fall snow forced the road closed this past week and it finally opened late yesterday. It won’t be long until the snow gets to be too much to clear and it will close until the end of May.
