In September, while my mom was here, we went driving to look at some fall color! We ended up on Mt Evans. Both Dan and I were quite impressed that my mom could get out of the car and walk around up there!!! There are people who live in Denver (5280 ft above sea level), and have their whole life, that cannot walk around at 14,000 feet above sea level. My mom is from only 1700 feet elevation, AND has adult onset asthma! Go Mom! Here are some fun pictures from there:
Fall color on the way up!
Quite the view.
Bighorn sheep, just owning the road.
“Do you have anything edible for me?”
The lake, at the trailhead most people use.
The trail goes along that ridge.
The “summit” (there are two, this one and then one behind me that is a little taller)
