Photographer's Note

Trail Ridge Road - Rocky Mountain National Park.

Trail Ridge Road is one of the really stunning places in this park. I am posting this today in honor of the crews actually getting the road plowed and open by yesterday for the summer season. I probably won't go to the park this weekend. It is the Memorial Day holiday. A good time to find oneself crawling through the park at 3 mph in a mile long line of recreational vehicles.

Trail ridge is a special place. 8 miles of the road are above 11,000 feet (3,353 meters) in elevation. Longs Peak (elevation 14,259 feet ... 4,345 meters) is in the distance.
