er and Colorado Springs, CO Markets
Description: Storm Chaser Verne Carlson was chasing the Tornado near Simla, CO when he followed what he thought was a country Dirt Road to get out of the path of the storm.
The dirt road ended up becoming a dead end road that was basically a several mile long driveway to someones house and it did not continue as the map suggested.
