Mt Evans ~ Colorado 14-ers ~ Drive to the Top Instead of Climbing

 
Climbing a 14,000 ft mountain is quite a feat.

 
If you've not attempted one before, Mt. Evans is a great one to start with.

 
As you can see, roads run nearly to the summit. 

 
Making for a fairly easy climb at the end of a lovely car ride. 

 
Now that's climbing in style.

 
If you're lucky you might see the mountain sheep that reside in the area.

 
Afternoons tend to get a little rainy and cloudy,  so plan for chilly weather

 
even during the summer.

 
I love the views from the top.

 
I'm told you can see all the way to Wyoming.
