After Ebbitts Pass, snow clears, and many rock outcroppings appear, like a sandstone badlands above a forest.

More rock outcroppings Lowlands are in the distance. For many days only mountains, no lowlands have been visible.

We see many lakes in late afternoon, sort of a lake district.

Snow finally reappears and stays the rest of the day.

I see Tootsie Roll and one of the couples from yesterday, but not the other.
