Mount Evans is a fabulous place to take your family driving, biking and hiking. The temperature change from the base of the mountain to its peak can vary dramatically. See my coat and shorts! Three of the four photos are mine own. See below.
I spoke with a ranger on one of my visits. He told me that it took him almost a full year to fully acclimate to the altitude change that results from rapid ascent by paved road.
Great friends, great view!
Kids love the tame sheep and goats.
It’s 15 miles from the lake to the peak. What a ride!
The fourth picture can be found at the Colorado Come To Life website as a feature photo in the description of the Colorado Scenic Byway.
