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

Good luck on your quest tomorrow to reach the summit. Cool tradition! Ride Safe.

Hoping to head up there with the wife soon too. Never driven over that road on a bike before. I can't wait!

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

This starts off right about where you had to stop:

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.

Where is this trail ride? Exactly. Looks like just the thing my friends and I love to check out.

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