A pretty scene taken on the way up Mount Evans over the 4th of July weekend. The sun was just getting high enough to illuminate the landscape on a chilly, blustery morning. The amount of snow still present was quite notable. While the mountains did receive a very healthy dose of snow over the winter (thankfully), the relatively cool and wet spring and early summer has slowed the melt.
