Spectacular!  Mt. Evans has been on my list.  One of these days I have to get out  there.   #colorado   #wildlife   #photography  
 
Mountain Goat View – Mt. Evans, Colorado
Best Viewed Large

A few weeks back the road up Mt. Evans finally opened, its opening delayed a few months by rebuilding work to a stretch of road that collapsed down the mountainside.  Sunrise brought great views of the plains to east, and the mountain goats were out in force.

A short while after sunrise, I caught this guy taking in the view.  The adult goats still had pretty shaggy fur, as they had yet to complete shedding their winter coats.

Mt. Evans, one of Colorado’s fifty-three 'fourteeners', is located thirty-five miles directly west of Denver, and its summit tops out at 14,271-feet (4,350 m).  The road leading up to about 140 feet from the mountain's summit is the highest paved road in North America.

Photo Notes: Single frame processed in Lightroom CC, and cleaned up (removal of dust spots and jet contrails) in Photoshop CC.

Evans is a nice bike ride.  I've somehow never ended up hiking it.  Bierstadt, Gray's, and Torrey's, are all covered in mountain goats.

Stay cool out there, my friends - this summer has been a real scorcher!

Thanks!  It would be a much better shot w/o the bark beetle kill in the background. :(

It hasn't been that long since a person was stabbed to death by an elk up in RMNP.  Those antlers are no joke.

The Mountain States! #porsupuesto :)  #books #readinglist #bibliophiles  

"Can We Guess Where You Live Based On Your Taste In Books?   Your reading habits say a lot about you."

You got: The Mountain States.   You live in one of the most interesting geographical regions in the country, and that’s how you like your books — always switching things up and keeping you on your toes. The landscape around you is so beautiful that you also have high standards for the writing in books you read.

BREAKING NEWS
The latest Image of Pluto clearly shows why it was declassified as a planet ...unfortunately the New Horizons probe fell silent shortly after taking this picture...

Just read that Old Fall River Road is open for the season!  Last year it was only open to pedestrians due to the flood damage.  I think they eventually closed it mid-summer to pedestrians as well.  Great news!   #RMNP   #FallRiverRoad   #flooding   #Colorado

Oh cool!  That's my favorite way up to the top.  I just rode to Jamestown yesterday for the first time since the flood.  Man was that road still a mess.

Baby elk are almost cute!  Unlike their incredibly awkward parents.  Great picture.
