The Rockies issue is still in flux, but I was out and about with my camera and near the Rockies on Saturday, April 25 and I took some photos, from around a bridge on Sleepy Hollow Road. I was there at about 1pm, and it was very warm, so there were few runners; I’m sure there were quite a few hours before:

Sleepy Hollow Road divides the Park in two, and there are two crossings. Here’s the southern-most one (referred to in a prior post), looking west:

And here’s what it looks like heading east:

And when you come through the bridge and turn left, you have this long, brutal hill; it takes you up to a farm.

On the west side of the bridge, you have a number of options. If you go left here, it’s up. Go right and it’s relatively flat heading north.

And here’s what the path looks like from atop the bridge itself, looking southeast:
