Oh, it’s coming, all right. We’ve been smacked once already and although Trail Ridge Road is open again, it won’t be for much longer. Winter is right around the corner and the folks up at the Alpine Visitor Center know it, too. They’ve built a snowman on the back deck railing, just as they did two years ago, and by the end of the month, the road will probably be closed for the season. Poor little guy will be up there all alone … if he doesn’t melt first.
