A Sign of the Season

As I was returning home from shopping Thursday, I could see the highway advisory sign was on. This is on the west side of the hogback that marks the west side of Canon City

At the south end, US 50 (right) turns and suddenly you are in Cañon City next to Old Max, the first prison in Colorado.

The Hogback is behind the prison. This was a natural barrier to escapes.

I got near the sign and read the message. Then turned back at the next crossover at the white house in the distance and went back down to the one south to retrace my route.

There had been avalanche warnings earlier and assumed the Pass was a mess.

This a picture of the east side of the Pass in April 2008. This is between Salida and Gunnison.
