Past the Denny Creek Trailhead parking lot, the road quickly became fairly snowy and icy in many parts along Chaffee County Road 306, en route to Cottonwood Pass.

Cottonwood Pass

Cottonwood Pass was being pounded with snow with fiercely cold winds when I arrived. The strong winds were so cold that my lungs felt in shock from breathing in such harsh and cold weather. Visibility, as you can see, was fairly poor. Ah, but if you love skiing and winter sports, I guess you might like all this! ;)
