Finally! Yesterday I finally had the first opportunity of the season to head up Mount Evans and was rewarded with some cool critters and scenes. Among them was this gorgeous nanny and her kid. My wife and I saw quite a few little ones but I kind of liked this capture the best as the pair perched high above the remains of the Crest House restaurant.
A very interesting scene near the top of the 14,265 foot high mountain. Temps were barely above freezing and the wind was howling more than I have ever seen up there – literally made me stumble as I walked. There is a lot more snow left than what we normally see this time of year as well, no doubt owing to the last couple of months which have been colder than normal slowing the snowmelt.
