  1. Default Traveling through the Rockies in November

    I'm wanting to take Hwy 50 from Walsenburg to Grand Junction, Colorado in mid-October to early November. Anyone know what to expect in road conditions for this time of year? Should I be prepared for snow? Would the Hwy likely be deserted then (pre ski season)? Thanks for your thoughts. Bill

    Welcome to RTA!

    Yes, you should be prepared for snow. You can get up to the minute road conditions at cotrip.org, they have a mobile version if you have a smartphone. You won't need chains but I wouldn't make the trip without a decent set of all-season tires. I doubt the highway will be deserted but I wouldn't expect heavy traffic.

    Default Just in case

    Keep a day or two up your sleeve so you can hole up in a motel if you should see a winter storm. Get back on the road when it is cleared.
