Colorado....Mt. Evans

One day we drove up Mt. Evans in our teeny tiny rental. Going up the side of a mountain in the middle of the Rockies was sooooo terrifying and sooooo beautiful at the same time. I am not too fond of heights and you know, looking over the side of 14,000 foot mountains. My photos came out nice, but there was no way to capture the beauty on my camera. I wish I could just bring you all to the top with me just for a few moments!!

Here are the kids at the top.

We made it!

Us low landers had to get used to the high altitude. The air was very thin and we all had to take it slow. Wesley did end up suffering from altitude sickness towards the end of our time at the top. He became sick to his stomach and his head started to hurt. I felt so bad for him:( I made sure to get lots of photos before heading back down the mountain.

On the way up we stopped at 'Summit Pond'. Wesley was amazed that there was still ice on it, lol! Brrrr!!

Beautiful pictures! I know what you mean about being afraid of heights. I had big issues driving through the mountains...the scenery was so beautiful but at the same time my fear of heights was getting the best of me!

Love the photo of the mountain goat (okay, okay - love *all* the photos!)!

I'm so glad you guys enjoyed Mt. Evans and I'm so glad you guys ran into some of Colorado's awesome wildlife. That is ONE of the MANY reasons why I love this state!

Hi!!! I wandered over from Alfred's Mom's blog, and I love your Colorado pictures!! My husband and I have lived in Denver for over 6 years but have never driven up Mt Evans. Guess we will have to do that soon! Looks like you had a wonderful CO trip! Isn't it a great place? I feel so blessed every day to live here!

Who am I?
