This was starting off. We took our time knowing the snow fell overnight, and was still falling in the morning so we didn't hit the road till ~11.
Not to far past on 285, (about a miles past the exit for Turkey Creek road?) we came past this accident were a guy slid of the road and was getting out of the truck. I didn't see him on the side (was looking too far forward) but my wife did, I stopped about a quarter mile up and was going to back up, but by slowing down others noticed and stopped right next to the guy, so we drove on.
After that slight pass, the snow slowed, and the roads were just wet, we took a pit stop in fairplay.
A ways down the sun tried to come out.
The some miles before the start of going up wolf creek... The snow comesback
The start of going u to wolf creek, What is that the sun?
Nope, Just a tease, snowed all the way up, near the peak:
Overall great drive loved it. Could've been less snowy. But it wasn't too bad. Thanks for all the help guys.
P.S. Ended up with a Rental Jeep Cherokee 4x4 with the 2.4l engine 9spd transmission. The ride itself is solid, nice and quite, its a limited so nicely loaded.
But: the engine is gutless the transmission while good for just cruising is terrible when it needs to sift, its very slow.
The MPGs are mixed, on the way to CO, going fast (speed limit 70-75, so a touch over), I got like 22.5 mpg.
Today the MPGs were surprising 28.2
