Climbing Mount Evans

My buddy and I began our journey at 3 in the morning in order to summit around noon to miss the summit storms. There are many places you can start this hike, we decided to start at the very bottom next to Chicago lake. Then hike up the west ridge to pick up Summit Lake and then go up the north face steep route to summit. The pictures attached are in order from the bottom of the trail to the summit. You can see throughout the pictures the climate changes and the different environments. We traveled through three types of environments; the ancient trees, the forest and the treeless peak above the timberline. We also started the journey at with shorts and a t-shirt, went through a snow storm in the middle of the summer, and mild chill at the summit and clear skies. Mount Evans hike is through pretty country, it’s challenging if you want it to be and in general a great way to spend a summer day in the great state of Colorado. But one thing to keep in mind if you don’t want to hike but enjoy Mount Evans, it does have one of the highest roads in the United States that takes you to the summit, but what’s the fun in that.
