MountainFever and I went out to the Stevens Gulch Road last Thursday and hiked the road to the official Grays/Torreys trailhead. Wanted to climb all the way up Grays but the snow conditions looked pretty questionable. Snowshoes were really not needed but we only got a little over 12,000 feet before turning around. There is still an absurd amount of snow in the Front Range. Saw a couple skiers as well.
Weather was great though and I shot some fantastic photos.
BTW...no one can drive up the Stevens Gulch road for at least a couple weeks. We even saw a snowmobile sitting down on the slopes about 20 feet below the road waiting to be hauled out in the summer.
