Old-Fashioned Rocky Mountain Snow Storm

National Park Service Ranger Ivan Kassovic
Friday, April 17, 2009

Spring? Not in the Rockies.

A snowstorm that blitzed Colorado overnight dumped more than 22 inches of fresh powder in Rocky Mountain National Park at Bear Lake, elevation 9,475 feet above sea level.

Down "lower," at 8,720 feet at the Kawuneeche Visitor Center on the west side of the park, only 3-4 inches fell.

This photo was taken by Ranger Ivan Kassovic at the bridge at Hidden Valley.
