We've been coming to Leadville every year during Spring Break since 2018 (with a break in 2021 due to COVID). This trip also made it our ninth road trip to Colorado... and counting. And now that I'm a little more experienced, I took my Nissan Pathfinder since it had 4WD. It was a nightmare driving the minivan in snow and ice. The major drawback was the loss of space but we made it work.
Anh Vien and his family also met up with us in the two mile high town. Good times.
