Colorado Department of Transportation crews were able to clear the 100-ton rockfall Friday afternoon. CO-133 is now open once again. Cleanup & permanent repair  work will continue in coming days.

The nineteenth-century English poet John Keats famously described autumn as the “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness / close bosom-friend of the maturing sun”-- a welcomed time of harvest beneath golden afternoon light. Autumn customarily heralds the appearance of falling leaves, ripe pumpkins, and wool sweaters. But also, it occasions an elusive apparition in the nighttime sky, a celestial ghost showing up for Halloween— the Gegenschein.
