Mount Evans road closed

From the AP:

The upper section of the road to the summit of Mount Evans has closed for the season.

The road to the 14,264-foot peak, billed as North America's highest paved roadway, is often slammed by snow, ice and winds in winter.

The road is open to Summit Lake, about 1,200 vertical feet below the summit.

Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park, which reaches over 12,000 feet, remained open Tuesday.
