Travelling in USA 2008/09 travel blog



Left Laurence working and took the car for a drive up into the Rockies ... everything started out fine, with sun shining and blue sky and great scenery ... however as I got further into the Rockies the weather turned, the temperature dropped to 8 deg F and the road got much worse with lots of snow and ice and the slush spraying from passing cars and lorries made it very hard to see out of the windscreen (the windscreen wash had frozen) ... and then the road signs saying 'snow chains compulsory' started flashing ... so I turned round just short of Vail and returned to Denver (which was still in lovely sunshine!).

The car will need to visit the car wash tomorrow!
