Your time to make the epic drive over the top of Rocky Mountain National Park is coming to a close.

Trail Ridge Road was closed today from Rainbow Curve to the Colorado River Trailhead, encompassing about four miles of the park’s highest terrain, amid snowfall and rain.

The road will reopen as weather permits, but it won’t be long before it’s shut down for the season.
