Snowy Colorado Roads (Photos of Steve Garufi's Driving Journey In Snow - April 17, 2009)

Snow Much of the mountain regions of Colorado received significant amounts of snowfall on Friday, April 17, 2009. I was in Montrose, CO on this particular morning, and this photo gallery includes all photos taken with my cell phone.

Snow The remainder of these photos were taken from my car. It took me approximately four hours to drive from Montrose, CO to Buena Vista, CO.
Snow The snow was coming down really hard at this particular point. I pulled over to hold my cell phone as steadily as possible.

Three photos as I traveled uphill on the east side of Monarch Pass.

I'd like to consider myself a very experienced Colorado driver, but I will admit there were a few unnerving spots climbing up this pass.
