PITKIN COUNTY, Colo. — A mudslide has blocked off Avalanche Creek Road near Highway 133 in Pitkin County, according to the sheriff's office.

The Pitkin County Sheriff's Office said it happened approximately a half-mile away from Highway 133.

Due to the risk of further mudslides overnight, resources will not be able to clear the road Thursday.

Campers will hunker down until the morning.
