Entering Mount Evans - the highest paved road in North America.
"Charlie," Sean's co-pilot.
Kinda overexposed. Found out later that the dropped lens (last weekend) is not working correctly.
Bright and sunny, heading up Mount Evans.
Looking toward the southeast, as Tom rounds the hairpin turn.
About halfway up the mountain, above the tree line.
A young sheep grazing, far from the road.
A pond near Summit Lake, about 3/4 to the summit.
The highest point, as viewed from the summit parking lot. Hike a few hundred yards to summit a 14'er.
Charlie was attracting lots of attention.

Sean and Charlie heading down Mount Evans.
Heading down the hill. Er, mountain. Rocky Mountain. Kind of like driving on the back of a snake.
The rain was moving in, as we descended the mountain.
We'll be in the rain, so enough.
Descending Mount Evans.
Rain and sleet. Looks like heavy snow.
A surprising number of bicyclists braved the rain. I guess they had no choice.
But it was sunny a few minutes ago!
The rain and sleet scared the road workers away. There's a new retaining wall on the right, below the road edge. Wide road - no need for guardrails.
To the east, Denver will see this storm later today.
Great views anywhere along Mount Evans Road.
Big shadows from the clouds, as a storm moves in.
Wet road, no sleet anymore.
Encountered a group of hot rods and other classic vehicles taking a break near the entrance to Mt Evans.
