Trail Ridge Road @ Rocky Mountain

I've been to Rocky Mountain before too last year, again I wasn't super thrilled to be going again. Mostly I was just planning to play tour guide assistant to a few of the 'first-timers'.


Interestingly, when I went last year, the main road called the Trail Ridge Road was closed due to the ice on the roads have not sufficiently melt. This time it was open.

Still, the initial drive into the national park was boring. I mean, yes the view are amazing...


But, I already had these last year. It was nothing new...

Then we started climbing higher up the mountains, on Initial D perfect winding roads...


We were sufficiently high above sea level when we made our first stop. This is when I realize, this time might not be so similar to last year after all...

7°C

Everyone was beginning to jacket up...


We are almost at the altitude where the clouds would be...


But we're not at the peak yet. We continued climbing...


4.5°C

We reached the altitude where the clouds are hanging around... over here, even jackets proved little use for the cold weather and the strong winds...



There was still some climbing to do, and when we reached the end point, where the peak is within sight,

2°C

This time really have to jacket up, if not really will die >.<


We were not able to hang around too long under such conditions, after taking some photos, we headed back down...


The trip was cool...
