My most recent post was about Rocky Mountain National Park’s centennial. Today, we took two visitors — one from Switzerland, one from Malaysia — to see the newly plowed Trail Ridge Road. As always shortly after the road opens for the season, vehicles travel between high snow walls on parts of the road and on other parts with jaw-dropping views of snow-covered peaks. Today provided an exceptional wildlife experience too: elk, bighorn sheep, a marmot and even an owl.
