As I paid my fee at the gate I asked the ranger if the road was clear to the top, he said it was. By the time I reached the Boulder Park viewing area, a mere 700 feet from the summit, the road was being closed due to high winds. Although I didn’t reach the summit the drive up and down the mountain was both enjoyable and scenic. At the 9,160 foot mark lays the Crystal Reservoir and at the 11,440 foot mark lays the Glenn Cove Visitors Center both offering souvenirs, restrooms, and a small café. The upper end of the highway is a series of tight switchbacks with few guard rails; not for the faint of heart. Although I failed in my mission to reach the summit, the trip was enjoyable and worth the time! I look forward to making another attempt!
