Across the Rockies

I had a tight deadline to get to LA, not much time to linger but there were some impressive views to see, first of all crossing the Rockies themselves, some great twisting roads

and even the occasional snow patch

detours and road closures got me a bit off track, when I wasn't expecting to be on dirt


ski resorts were closed, I had hoped to get a snowboarding session in as I knew that often the resorts in Colorado can remain open until July. However my luck was oout and even the late opening ones were shut the first week in May.
I passed motionless chair lifts beside the highway.
