A place that had my imagination from early in researching this tirp was Hamilton. When I found the road, it was a good dirt route and remained so for a good while. Rounding a bend, I realized I was near the snow line on another mountain across the valley. After a few pictures from there, I moved on. Then, I rounded a bend to find a snow drift higher than the car across the road. Walking back to get a shot of the car and the drift, I noticed a rougher road that seemed as though it may by-pass the drift. I tried it, but soon came to a long muddy portion that I decided I should not try. Then, I saw a traveled trail back to the main road passed the big drift, but before a drift I probably could have navigated. I decided not to try it, because climbing back up to where I was may have been problematic. Later I realized there were probably more drifts before Hamilton. Later in the day I proved it.
