2011 - February 25th - Grand Mesa Winter Storm

Posted on the 17 April 2011 by Danncianca
I was working on a story at work that required some good snow footage, so I decided to head up to Grand Mesa during a nice winter storm warning. While I didn't make it all the way to the top of the mesa due to personally-administered time constraints, I was able to get some good views in.
The weather was actually quite nice in the valley and even on the drive until I reached Powderhorn, then it began to snow... and the rate of precipitation increased as I ascended the switchbacks on the north side of the mesa.
Anyway, here are a few shots I took while out. Captions as necessary.

PS: I don't really consider this a "storm chase", even though my definition is to "deviate from one's path to pursue a storm" I try to keep it convective.
