Husband took these gorgeous photos:
Daughter and I hiking up the last bit of Mt. Evans. The lack of oxygen really did a number on me. That’s me in the black coat with the hood on, initially hanging on to courage, but failed and never made it to the top. It was cold and extremely windy. Husband and the girls made it though.
At the summit, a varmint sits on a hanging rock overlooking the view.
We saw these mountain goats near the restrooms (center left). They blend in with the environment so well that we didn’t even notice them. I believe a few people were taking photos of them and that’s how we saw them too.
On our drive up to the summit, there was a small section near the road with these amazing bristlecone pine trees. We decided to stop on our way back from the summit to stand among them and to snap some shots.
