Mount Evans

Today we decided to take a drive to the summit of Mount Evans west of Denver. The temperature in the city was 86 degrees F (30C) and when we reached the summit at 14,130ft (4,307m), the temperature was only 48 degrees F (9C). Brrr!

We took our car, but some intrepid travelers ride bicycles all the way to the top!

Near the summit you can see mountain goats and Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep.

It's a haven for photographers. This gentleman was using a vintage Hasselblad to capture photos of the bristlecone pines.
