Photos of Snow, Snowdrifts and Mountains in Colorado - April 20, 2008
Photos at Loveland Pass
Loveland Pass sits on U.S. Highway 6 on the Continental Divide.
Amazingly, this road served as the main west-east corridor before the
Eisenhower Tunnel was built.
I think it's going to be awhile before the Loveland Pass sign is free of snow.
When I arrived at 10:45 a.m., it was extremely windy and felt like it
could have been in single digits with the wind chill.
There is a small parking area. This place was busy with backcountry skiiers.
Two years after this visit, I'd hike Mount Sniktau from Loveland Pass.
The really large snowdrift on the westbound side of the pass was astonishing!
It has been one of the snowiest winters since 1940's (according to long-time Colorado residents)
and it will be awhile before the snow recedes.
