My mom and I made our annual drive up Mt. Evans on Wednesday, accompanied by friend Verena, a Mt. Evans newbie. I would have to say that it was one of our better visits to the mountain. The flowers were AMAZING and we saw lots and lots of wildlife, including a few mountain goats and more bighorn sheep than we’ve ever seen in one place before. Check out the rest of my Mt. Evans – July 2014 photo gallery HERE (and be grateful that I pared down the 1,200+ photos I took that day to a much more manageable number).
