DENVER — The highway leading to the summit of Mount Evans is finally open after more than a month of clearing snow.

The road opened to Summit Lake on Friday and opened all the way to the top on Wednesday.

Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mountain National Park is also open on a day-by-day basis during daylight hours as long conditions are good.
