We drove the Mt Evans Scenic Byway outside Denver.
The peak is the 12th highest of 109 in Colorado that are over 10,000 feet.
It’s up there, well above tree line. Rocks for miles.
It’s tempting to say it’s booooring.
However, if you click on the picture, you’ll see an amazing amount of tones and textures. Those clouds made the sun fight for a chance to shine through…and it did. You can see the clouds also delivered life-giving rain.
Just to the left of dead center you can barely see two little lakes, and another to the right of center. There’s a lot of life happening way up here in the rocks.
Yes, this Mountain Goat nanny and kid showed up just as we parked in a lot near the summit! A ranger told us the nanny is fond of licking de-icer salt off the steps of a nearby lookout. He thought the kid was about four months old.
