On Saturday afternoon, it started snowing, and then it began snowing with a capital S.

I took a ride up the canyon since the roads were just wet here in Poudre Park. It didn’t get exciting until about Mountain Park.

I went as far as the fish hatchery. Then it got a little too interesting. At one curve, I saw a terrifying set of tire tracks.

They did lead back to the road, however, so at least they hung on to it. At that point, I decided it was time to turn around.

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) appears to be fully activated. On the downward trip, there was evidence that a plow had passed. Overnight there were several power outages, one lasting a few hours.
