Snow atop RMNP

Love this park—driving up to the very top, so many things to view. Wonderful place if you know no geology. I teach geomorphology so every part of the park is wildly interesting to me. The last time I entered the park, I pulled off the road to eat lunch. A ranger asked us to move—turns out a helicopter had to land not far away to remove two people severely injured in a motorcycle accident. The pavement is about 5 inches above the shoulder and while they had just entered the park, were probably not paying close attention, ran off the shoulder and crashed.
