Mount Evans, CO

So here we are on Mount Evans, 14,000 feet up. It literally is the highest road you can drive in the continental U.S., and that's a quote from the literature. I was there for most of a day, and before I ran out of breath I took these pictures. Enjoy the view!

Here's a shot I didn't fully see when I took it. I was just grabbing views, and focusing too much on the camera, so it was only after I returned to the prairie when I saw what I should have experienced more fully then. Oh well, have to go back.

Echo Lake Sign

Sign at Echo Park, CO

You get to Echo Lake Park before the real climb. A beautiful place for a picnic and short walk on a pristine mountain lake. Let's keep it that way.

Now we are at Echo Lake itself. Nice trail around it, people fishing, trailing kids and dogs. Perfect spot to chill before the climb up Mount Evans.

Echo Lake trail

Near the lake there is large area for meandering, is the best I can put it. Plus some great picnic areas. No camping here, this is just a great stop point on the way up the mountain, and/or on the way down.

Mount Evans sign

Mount Goliath Recreation Area sign

About half-way up the Mt. Evans road you reach a visitor center marked by this sign. We're at the timber line, and a few trails wander off into the divide between trees and what looks like tundra. The trees are straight out of a Tim Burton film, and the sky only reinforced the surreality. But nothing about the space felt spooky, quite the opposite: nothing but clean air and beauty in any direction.
