More Mountains

Earlier I posted about the mountains, but I guess I hadn’t really seen the mountains until we drove up Mt Evans today. The road was nerve-wracking, but the view was worth the trip. 14000 feet.

Great things are done when men and mountains meet. -William Blake

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. -Edward Abbey

Our peace shall stand as firm as rocky mountains. -William Shakespeare

How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains! -John Muir

There were even mountain goats wandering around.

On the way out, it began sleeting, which was an odd experience in July. The temperature dropped to around 40 degrees though on top of the mountain. The cyclists were still riding though.
