Description   EN   

Mount Evans is the road into the sky. Drive from 8,700 feet at Idaho Spring where you turn off Interstate 70 to 14,240 feet to the summit, and you will pass through 3 life zones, passing ancient trees, lakes and forest to the land above timberline. It can be 90 degrees in Denver and 40 degrees at the top of Mount Evans. Mountain Goats and Bighorn Sheep will greet you as you climb to the top of the world. Take a picture of the view.

Made it up to the summit today, all 14,264 feet.  Not quite prepared for the 35 degree temperature, but it warmed up quickly.  Some mt. goats with 2 new babies stopped by.  Hard to see everythng on the sheet, but the OCNA logo turned out nice.  Thanks for the nice virtual.
