    Ahhh…Mt Evans,one of my favorite places. I was there one day and it started out sunny,then rained,followed by snow. All in the same day. A great place to observe mountain goats for sure. Super shot.

  • Thanks Chuck. It is a great place, that’s for sure. And you’re absolutely right about the weather. We’re going to Breckenridge next week. Same time last year it snowed up there! Cheers.
