Mt. Evans is one of my favorite destinations in the summer when I'm looking for an easy trip to photograph wildlife. On any given day it''s common to see mountain goats, bighorn sheep, elk, deer, marmots, pikas, foxes, coyotes, ermine and many other animals that make their home on the high alpine tundra. The road to the top of Mount Evans is the highest paved road in all of North America, passing three different life zones on the way. The road gives many a chance to see what it looks like from the top of one of Colorado's highest peaks, who wouldn't otherwise get to. Prepare for any type of weather on this road in the summer, including snow.
