Another Sign Winter is Just Around the Corner

Trail Ridge Road across the high tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park closed for the season on Monday.

The road reaches more than 12,000 feet above sea level.

It's the highest continuous paved road in the nation, and winter wind and snow make it impossible to keep open.

Park officials say it closed Monday. The road connects Estes Park on the east with Grand Lake on the west.
