My goal was to arrive within view of the Rocky Mountains at dawn.  I left Kansas City around 8 pm and had been driving all of Kansas through the night.  The first hints of daylight were coming on as I departed Limon Colorado but my eyes nagged me into a rest-stop.  I was able to get a solid 2 hours of sleep, I woke up straight out of dreamstate and it actually took me a minute to figure out where I was.  It didn't take long to clarify the push toward the first mountain range of the many to come, I was rolling at 70 on 70 before 7:00.   By 8 am I was sipping coffee not too far from a little town called Silver Plume.  I could see a snowstorm was imending but didn't anticipate the white out conditions that swept in at their heaviest when I crested near Vail.  During certain moments over the next few hours driving toward Carbondale, I moved toward blurred, glowing red shapes infront of me, guarding my breaks, gaining relief encompassed in the tunnels.
