Old Winter Snow

Remains of old winter snow, appearing like layers of white sedimentary rock, can be seen at the Alpine Visitor Center on Rocky Mountain National Park's Trail Ridge Road. The two lane road is the highest paved road in the country at 12,183 feet above sea level (or in other words, over 2 miles above Charleston level!)
