So Nick and Ali and I took a mountain drive today up to Mt. Evans. The weather said it was going to rain in the afternoon, so we thought we would be ahead of the storm. Not so much.
Normally, you'd be seeing mountain ranges far off into the distance . . .
it was hovering around 36°
we were able to get a bit of a view down into the valley
Echo Lake in the gray
the snow/hail/graupel along the trail
not too many folks up here for lunch. Just the tables along the windows had people at them and the parking lot was mostly empty. The view below.

Nick went for the buffalo burger, Ali the made-from-scratch chicken pot pie
and a few more stops to play in the snow on the way down
and a stop or two for little bitty waterfalls
