Even though the latest spring storm ended last week and temperatures now are into the 70s there is still need for caution when out driving.

The latest storm dumped up to four feet of snow in some areas of Colorado last week making driving in the high country a real headache.

The rapidly warming temperatures this week are causing the new snow to melt quickly increasing the concern for rock slides.

Warm days and re–freeze over night cause rocks to break loose and fall.

When driving through canyons and the high country officials say to use caution and be prepared for stopped traffic or rocks in the road around blind corners.
