The adventure begins! I parked approximately
2.5 miles west of the Denny Creek Trailhead gate at the first major switchback that turns right.
(I'll estimate the distance at about 0.4 miles west of the
Ptarmgian Lake Trailhead parking lot.)
I walked up the road among the switchbacks. Look at this snowy mountain view! :)
Two photos of the same mountain from different parts of the road.
A smashed sign on the side of the road.
My guess is a snowmobiler (or vehicle?) crashed into it. That is probably a good thing,
because the adjacent photo doesn't quite show just how much of a steep vertical drop it is down to the road.
The lighting was not the greatest, but a nice Coloradoey snow scene. :)
I walked on this path for awhile. So peaceful! :)
Plenty of snow on the road.
Two photos of the mountains. That mountain ridge is part of the
Continental Divide. Derrick, Aaron and myself
walked about five miles on the divide from
Cottonwood Pass to Mt. Kreutzer last year.
I remember standing on that unnamed peak out there. ;)
I turned back here.
