The Road in FN02 on the way home

The weather in this contest in the area, road closures, travel bans, snow storms we haven’t had quite to this intensity in a couple years, etc. made this probably one of the most fun contests I have ever participated in. It also reinforced why I always will have a vehicle with 4WD or AWD while living in this area.
