We were fortunate to be at the park the week before it closed in the Fall of 2004. It was a day when it couldn't decide to clear, snow, or bits of both. The temperatures were perfect so that the snow "frosted" the world nicely, with snow showers and bright light mixing in ways one could only dream about. After living in the Alpine environs of Colorado, moving to Mexico, and then returning to an Alpine environment gave me a new eye, like greeting an old friend and being reminded of things one knew once and appreciated.
