Mt Evans 6-27-17

134

Long drive for a day trip - doesn't leave a lot of time to look around really unless you get a really early start from down here.  Highest paved highway in North America to the top of Mt. Evans.




Shaky video of Bighorn Sheep coming down the hillside.















I brought some goat wool I found on the trail home - both mom's dog Toby and my cat Abe loved it!







highest observatory in the world - wish I could've gone inside at night!








Marmot


Bristlecone Pine





back at home - 3 MS Kites preening







And one on the nest - just barely see the tail
