Phil and I were invited to go up with the media to see Trail Ridge Road before it opens (weather permitting) to the public on Friday for Memorial Day Weekend. It is always fun to see how the road is plowed and to see the HUGE snow drifts! The different newspapers and TV stations come out to take pictures of the huge rotary snowplows in motion and how they throw the snow so far away. It is just incredible to see just how much snow there is on top of the mountain! The snowdrifts must be 25 feet tall! Here is a picture of Phil standing in front of the huge snowdrift up near the Alpine Visitor’s Center.
If you want to see some spectacular scenery, come up to Rocky Mountain National Park this weekend and drive up Trail Ridge Road. It is unbelievable!
