Top of Trail Ridge Road closed due to snow

Ah yes, the changing of the seasons is here and that means our weather conditions go from one extreme to the next.  Following a dry, warm week, Mother Nature brought snow to Colorado’s high country Friday night into Saturday leading to the closure of the highest, continues road in North America.

Rocky Mountain National Park reported dangerous conditions near the top of the Trail Ridge Road resulting in its temporary closure at Rainbow Curve on the east side and Milner Pass on the west side.  Also closed was Old Fall River Road.  Video from Trail Ridge showed a wintry scene looking like the Arctic tundra.

The agency said this was not the seasonal closure – yet.
