No big, slow trucks or anything, just massive amounts of folks heading back to the front range. What fun!
Yep, unfortunately the traffic home is going to be bad.
the last couple of Sundays on my way home from work in Idaho Springs, it has been pretty slow. But, traffic never seems as irksome when I'm sitting in my 40.
I might take the frontage RD route into Idaho Springs and then the scenic route over Squaw Pass back home. I'll scout that this week and see if it's all passable.
