Mt Evans 6-27-17


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!


Bristlecone Pine

back at home - 3 MS Kites preening

And one on the nest - just barely see the tail
