Amazing Snow Removal Photos from Trail Ridge Road
Fritz Prehn of Golden, Colo., took a flight over the Great Divide and captured these amazing photos over the Rocky Mountain National Park.
During a flight lesson, Fritz, a student at the Colorado School of Mines, captured these plows clearing the 22-foot drifts from Trail Ridge Road.
According to 9 News, the plow crews started clearing the snow a couple weeks ago and should be finished by Memorial Day. One crew will start on the west end and another starts on the east end of the road and they meet in the middle.
Trail Ridge Road is one of the highest continuous paved roads in the US that reaches its pinnacle at 12,183.
