Trail Ridge Road is the highest, continuous, paved road in North America. It goes above 12,000 feet in elevation and is pretty, darn, close to our home.
The road is closed in the winter due to snow and had just opened on Saturday for the season.... weather permitting.
Hubba and I have taken the trip once before, but wanted to see the walls of snow. So after the BolderBoulder and a nap on Memorial Day, we went out.
In Estes Park and at in the lower levels of Rocky Mountain National Park it was shorts and t-shirt weather, but above tree-line we were wearing down-sweaters and knit-hats.
The elevation and topography can be disorienting. Even for us Coloradoans, an extra mile above sea level is significant. ;-)
I'm so happy to be living in this part of the world. :-)
