Tallest Parking Lot !

This is the parking lot for scenic views on the Trail Ridge Road. The blue Ford Focus seen in the picture is the car in which I came here. And of course, I was not the one driving...
I guess this is the tallest parking lot I have ever been to, at 11,000 feet of altitude

The Road Itself
