The Drive Home

On our way home today we took the road that went through Rocky Mountain National Park. "These are the Never Summer Mountains"

Here's a rare one of me and the small dog who got to travel with us.

The Visitor's Center was headed down off the peak of the highway. We are used to altitude and were feeling it just drivig and getting out to take pictures. But then again there were people bicycling this.

Still a bit of snow up there. This is out the window of the moving car:

More shots out the window:

Lower down there were elk in velvet:

No tomatoes will ever grow in the Never Summer Mountains...

Yes, it is a beautiful place, but cold and windy.

ilex, you're right there - I don't think there is a growing season up there. We commented that we didn't even see marmots above tree line.
