Glen Canyon Dam in the Snow
Driving through the high country of the Colorado Plateau is iffy in the winter. We have been caught in virtual white-outs with dangerous ice conditions while traveling in the winter. It was just as cold and snowy as it looks in this photo. The highest pass on Highway 89 between Flagstaff and Provo, Utah is over 7000 feet and in the winter, driving through Flagstaff has provided some very challenging driving conditions. One time, the only way we could keep going was to have all the passengers lean out the windows in the snow blowing by and watching for the edge of the road.
