|Climbing to top of Rockies|
- Many pull overs along the way you just have to stop and view the dense trees, snow fields and spring snow melt flow downs. At one stop I met a man from Tokyo now living in Boulder. He had skis and explained he planned to climb up this spot and ski down to dirt line and climb up again to do another spot. Got to use some my little Japanese on him. It is amazing at this height how good the roads are, how well kept pull overs are and even great info signs along the way.
Well maybe this road is my favorite: switchbacks, narrow, sheer drop offs, vistas, snow, waterfalls, valleys, delicate flowers, marmot, elks, etc. But you must start early. It gets VERY busy.
