Reader Susan Capiel provided a series of photos taken by her friend from Salida, Greig Ballantine, who was on the Twin Lakes side of Independence Pass after the noon hour Monday, when a cornice toppled. Motorists and passengers all chipped in to remove the snow, Capiel reported. "Miraculously no cars were actually caught beneath the cornice as it toppled/no one was hurt; just a lot of good folk/kids/dogs laboring with everything from buckets, hammers, Frisbees, pots/pans, kid sleds — even Gucci bags! — whatever available to clear the road," Capiel said.
