The road was closed at first due to new snow that fell last night. Once the road was plowed and the sun melted the ice, the road reopened at 2:00 pm. We had hoped to drive up here on the old gravel road which would have made it a 30 mile loop, however that road doesn't open until at least July 4th.
This was the most amazing thing to watch; the clouds blowing and flowing over the peaks like ocean waves. Click on photo to enlarge!
The visitor center, with frozen pipes and no restrooms. BTW The wood timbers on the roof are to prevent wind damage.
A Ranger told me they plow a much as 24 feet of snow. That must be in the winter, this time of year it's only 12 feet.
The Never Summer Mountains. We've enjoyed these snowy peaks from 5000' for a couple weeks now; what fun it is to now be among them.
