Mount Evans is about 2 hours from my home. It is the highest paved road in North America at 14,130 feet. We went up for sunset and the nice light and of course the wildlife. We didn't see anything all the way to the top. It was very windy and the animals might have bedded down already. Just before the sun went down, some mountain goats showed up. Pam, my wife and driver, didn't like the drive back down in the dark. The road has straight down cliffs, with no guard-rails.
