Alamosa to Denver

D75_9519 D75_9510Last full day and a lot of distance to cover setting off early from Alamosa to Denver via Colorado Springs.

As we head into the mountains to cross over The Rockies the rain turns quickly to snow. The passes are high, Poncha at 9010ft and Wilkerson 9570ft with snow settled on the road. The snow ploughs are out in force.

Stopped at Wilkerson pass to take a few photos. The snow is heavy and settled to 2/3 inches. Its lovely crunchy,sticky snow.

Out of the mountains the weather clears up and our last stop the USAF Academy at Colorado Springs.

There is a fantastic multi-faith chapel here, famous for its architecture and stained glass.

And so onto Denver and an overnight stop before flying home.

Travelled just short of 3000 miles in 3 weeks passing through Colorado,Wyoming, Montana, Utah and New Mexico.D75_9491
