Although the Snowy Range gets its name from the white colored rocks, it's also a place with more than its share of frozen precipitation. During the winter, when Cheyenne's forecasts call for an inch or two of snow, the Snowies routinely measure their snowfall in feet. As a result, the primary road is closed for many months, leaving the area accessible only by snowmobile or cross-country skis.
In case you were wondering, the reason there's so little snow in this picture is that it was taken in the middle of October.
Welcome! I hope you'll join me for my Wednesday in Wyoming posts -- a chance to learn a little bit about the state I now call home. And, for more information about me and my books, please visit www.amandacabot.com.
