Last week Colorado’s high country saw a healthy shot of snow prompting a closure of Trail Ridge Road, North America’s longest continuous paved road. Road crews worked all week and through the first part of this past weekend to get it open. Sunday morning my son and I were among the first to drive it.
It was bone chilling cold at 13,000+ feet with snow drifts up to 3 feet in spots. Mother Nature made the trip well worth it however and rewarded us with a stunning scene. Here, one of the nearby peaks is coated in fresh snow as clouds behind move past.
