Wednesday in Wyoming - August 25, 2021


Snowy Range with snow on mountains
The last two weeks' blog posts have shown you the brilliant colors of autumn in the Snowy Range. All too soon, they fade and snow arrives. 

The amount of the snow and the road's elevation (peaking at over 10,000 feet) result in the only road through the Snowies being closed for more than six months each winter. 

No cars are allowed, but that doesn't stop winter sports enthusiasts from coming. During the snowed-in months, the Snowy Range is a mecca for skiers and snowmobilers.

You'll find me at home, drinking cocoa and waiting for the snow to melt and the road to reopen.
