I was in Leadville, Colorado
on Friday afternoon and needed to return to my home
in Buena Vista. The snow began to fall by mid-afternoon
in this small mountain town that sits at over 10,000 feet in elevation.
Adjacent are three photos I snapped from the car while driving on Highway 24.
I tweeted the second and third photo
and it was noticed by a TV news station in Denver. They asked if they
could use one of the photos for the weather section of their program,
but I don't think they ended up using it.

Hayden Meadows area of Lake County.
SECOND: Making a turn.
THIRD: Approaching the Highway 82 turnoff. A right (west) would lead to
Independence Pass and
