A light dusting of snow on Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park is likely the first measurable snow of the season in Colorado, according to the Denver Post. A webcam at the the Alpine Visitor Center, at 11,796 feet, picked up shots of the snow.
The Alpine Visitor Center is the highest visitor center in the National Park System, and while the dusting is likely already gone, drifts from previous seasons can still be found in the area.
