It never ceases to amaze me regarding the changes in weather in Rocky. One of the great things about Rocky Mountain National Park.

this year they didn't claim that the road was "officially" open even though it had been closed for over a month like back in 2009. For the current Park bosses, it's usually about image over substance - but this time, they got it right.

Next up for this crew - old Fall River Road is going to "magically" turn into a back country trail as soon as the last NPS work truck comes down and they close the gate. Dog walkers, you will soon be violators of resource law!! And don't even think of riding a bike on it until spring!!
