Snow at Vail Pass Summit with Zeb and Eider Duck

Leaving Nederland and unseasonably warm temperatures, we west drove on I-70 to Vail Pass.   We stopped at the rest area and look at this snow.   This sign is buried in snow.

Sign is about buried in snow

This shows the bright blue Colorado sky that we love.

You can almost see the sign between the snow and bright blue sky

Isn’t this beautiful?     Even the stairway and path are closed due to snow.

In the summer we hike up this hill and the view is spectacular.   We love this sign.

Great sign

Great sign and snow as tall as the building

They need to tell us not to take skis and snowmobiles inside the rest area building.   That is great!   We went inside the building, but we could hardly see out the window.

This is the view from the window

The snow is piled almost as high as the building.   Here we are, Zeb and Eider Duck, sitting in a snow bank.

Hey mom, this snow is cold.
