    Fascinating, Don. Cooled me right off with that glacier run-off.

    Cliff hanger indeed. I'm sure my wife and kids would say "no gracias" to that drive.

    Well, it was kinda skinny going through there but the town was worth the effort as you'll see in the coming series of posts.

    Question for you Don,
    Many of the pictures have considerable amounts of snow, did you do your visits in the spring or are these places high enough to have some snow most of the year?

    Actually it was the result of a number of reasons. I would build up my vacation time so I could take an extended period of time and usually tried to plan the trips during the first part of summer if I was going to Colorado or someplace in the Rocky Mountains. I also wanted to do it when the places were not over-run with people so I'd go during the last part of June and early July. Some of these places have snow most of the year, especially on the north facing slopes. Wait till ya see the next bunch of photos of Tomboy, Colorado and going up the Black Bear Road. Lots of snow and the "pucker factor" of the road and conditions will get your attention.
