One time I was headed back to school and a foot of snow had fallen in the canyon. It was 3 AM on Monday morning and I was the only person in the canyon, not even any snowplows. I had a '74 Duster that I had added a set of Cibie sealed beams, 6" amber fogs and a set of rectangular driving lights to. It was amazing to light up the canyon and "break trail" on virgin snow. I didn't see another car until Edwards.

Just too many people on the Western Slope for something like that to ever happen again.
