You can't get there from here

A photo of the rockslide on I70 in Glenwood Canyon which occurred around midnight last night.  I70  is closed indefinitely.  Steve drove through the canyon at about 5 pm yesterday.  To get from Aspen to Denver when I70 and Independence Pass are closed adds about 5 hours to a 4 hour road trip.  But, to Amtrak's relief, since the train tracks through Glenwood Canyon are on the other side of the river from the highway and the rock slide, the tracks were unaffected by the rock slide and  the trains between Glenwood Springs are still running.
