 Where did the snow go? Baldwin Jeep Road   

I'm not much for typing out a wordy trip report, mainly because I only use two fingers to type, and I got to go to work soon . Just wanted to post pictures from my hike yesterday Monday 10/6/2008. The temp. at the top was 41 degrees with little wind, and had the summit to myself.

Driving south from Leadville Massive and Elbert had the most snow. The further south I drove the less snow on the peaks.
