Were there for some sledding in winter. Garbage was everywhere. Chains required in snow. There's a police office in the town that needs to see your chains before you head up the mountain.

Nice scenic route to get here and enjoy the mountain views and big skies. Easy trip worth jumping off the highway for an excursion.
