Drive up to Park City (fairly large snow storm, and 56k YOU FAIL)

As stated, we had our first fairly large snow storm yesterday morning, and I say we picked a hell of a time to go up to Park City (y'know, the place where they have the Sundance Film Festival? well they have outlet stores). Needless to say, me brother's $100 Bose headphones crapped out on him so we had to go replace them. the following pictures are the results of that morning. (Intro to "Law and Order" plays )

*EDIT* added new pics from same day, on Page 2

Hmm......look what I woke up to:


Ok, this is a sign they REALLY SHOULD read:


This is about halfway. Made me feel a lot better that a focus was making the trip just fine:


Again, about halfway is where it gets bad. A stuck truck caused this. (note the speck of a car on the left side, way ahead )


Here's the speck note to mustang owners: don't try to make your way up a canyon road that gets closed almost every time it snows


Another view of the poor mustang:


nothing special, but the snow plows have not come yet


This was seriously how bad it got when we were closer to the top:


another bad visibility view (note the black splotches are dried water spots on my lens )


Uhhh.... are you sure this is the exit??


There's the ride, good old Mazda CX-7 (AWD Turbo Duratec FTW! )


Nice view of the Tanger Outlet malls..... plus a red Scoobie (I've never seen a newer one that color):


OH LOL....guess it's been snowing more back at home:


Haha.....license plate and taillights are the only distinguishable colors here.... everything else matches the house or the snow


My brother's Suzuki Esteem is a wannabe Focus


Make that EURO focus


whoo........that was fun.
