Trail Ridge Road in June

My husband, son and I went in a little excursion.  Yes, I said my husband and son – not my brother for once! (9 images)

We had bought an annual pass to Rocky Mountain National Park the first year that we were here, but only used it about four times. We just bought another one.  This year we’re going to use and abuse it!

This is what Trail Ridge Road looked like on June 22nd.  I had seen an image posted somewhere that showed 17′ snow drifts in May!  You can see an image of the Alpine Visitor Center being dug out of the snow here.

Here are a few pics from visitor center:

I had to play the tourist by having a snow picture of myself taken:

The following image will show you just how windy it was up there (taken while driving past)!
