Default Trail Ridge Road

Made my annual pilgrimage to go over Trail Ridge Road this morning-thought I was early enough to miss the afternoon thunder storms we've been getting pounded by every day for the last week-wrong. They closed the road due to a rock slide that the ranger said should be cleaned up today so I went as far as I could up to Rainbow Curve and took a few pictures & headed down with rain & hail following me-it smelled glorious in the timber and plenty of wildlife-the river's a bit to muddy & fast to fish but they were trying all down the canyon. I'll give it another go tomorrow and hopefully make the summit where I've been taking a photo in the same place every Memorial Day weekend for over twenty years. Brian

Road was still closed this morning but it's a lot nicer day-maybe next weekend.

Love that road as well. I did a 2200 mile trip in 3 days this last summer in July. I love Estes.I got to roll thru some sleet and snow with the double dark side setup right before the visitors center. Never slipped once but it was minimal. I would not even attempt it with MT.

I love Estes.If you go check out the Stanley Hotel. Stayed there on my anniversary. The scallops in the restaurant were outstanding.
