April 24, 2007 - I stayed overnight in Colorado Springs and despite some very snowy and windy conditions, I was determined to make it back to Buena Vista. Don't worry, I drove slow. Adjacent is a photos of the snow coming down on my car at an apartment complex in Colorado Springs.
Interstate 25 in Colorado Springs The most exciting photo gallery of mine? No. But I was in the mood to snap some photos. This was the view of rain and wind as I looked north at Interstate 25 on Fillmore.

Once I reached the area of Cascade, Chipita Park and Green Mountains Falls on Highway 24 west, that's when the snow really began to come down!
Woodland Park, Colorado Woodland Park was fairly ding-dang snowy too!
Snowy Road Occasionally I would stick the camera outside my car and did my best to guard the lens from getting wet. (Photo: The westernmost traffic light in Woodland Park.)
Car Stuck In Snow If I had any winter gear with me, I would have pulled over to help ... Honest! (I was wearing sandles and my Krispy Kreme t-shirt with a fleece in the trunk.)
Snowy Forest The snow-covered trees looked pretty.
Florissant, Colorado As I entered Florissant in Teller County, the snow conditions let up a bit, but ahhhhhh, there was more snow coming! ;)

    I pulled over at Trout Creek Pass to get a couple of shots.

    Coming down into the upper Arkansas River valley, the precipitation had ended. However, the view of Mount Princeton that many "oooh" and "aaah" over was pretty much covered in clouds.
