It is 11/13/2016, a sunny day with a little cold. I really hope I can see the snow today.
And when we drive to the half way, we have this view.Nice!
Snow on the mountain!
When we just enter the mountain,
we can already see the snow fly all around.
Welcome to the winter!
Driving become a challenge,
but this can not stop me.
Road closed? Really? Why? They should clean the snow!
So, we decided to walk to the peak.
About one miles away, the wind becomes stronger and stronger.
Snow fly again and cut my face.
The only feel is: god, I should wear more clothes and my gloves.
So, just about half an hour walking, we give up.
This let me remember into the wild
With about 25 degree and the huge wind
how can he survive during the winter without the bus
Thus, do not do any stupid decision about the nature.

People used 4 years to construct the trail road
This is how the trail road constructed
And RMNP has following research now:
- Restoration of Riparian Willows
- Assessing the Vulnerability of White-tailed Ptarmigan to Climate Change
- Nutrient Retention and Productivity in Rocky Mountain Streams Under Alternative Stable States
- Constraints on Colorado Front Range Evolution by Testing and Developing Helium Thermochronometers
Well.. I have no idea for these researches.
Whatever, I finally see the snow here!
But where is the snow in the school?
