Probably in May, or June I would say. It depends a lot on how cold the winter was. Also it is usually 15 to 20 degrees cooler up there due to the elivation all year long even in the summer.

No it is not anywhere as scary, but the pull offs will show you views that are higher then the Monument so that might be nerving but no drop offs.
