2013 First Snow, Mount Sopris

1013 Sopris first snow


Left Denver, Colorado mid afternoon, planning to stay in Glenwood Springs to get an early start to shoot Maroon Bells with first snow and fall colors. An accident on I-70 @ Vail Pass left me and hundreds of others parked for 3.5 hours...ended up taking 10 hrs to get to Glenwood. Thought to myself the challenge would be worth it to get a great shot of the Marroon Bells, only to find out the road was closed due to the "government shutdown"...thank you Mr. President! Arrived too late to hike the road and shoot with good light, but always enjoy Sopris.
