Atop Mount Evans

After our spectacular drive up to Mount Evans, the view from the top was awesome. You could see downtown Denver in the distance.

Friends are always better with altitude.

We both laughed that we were waaay too sore from our hike down Pike's Peak to attempt to climb the last few hundred feet to the very top of Mount Evans.

Isn't that an awesome road? The highest, last few miles were closed just a few days after our ascent.

I was fascinated with this old little building. I love how the lines mimicked the mountains.

Who knew fields of rocks could be so beautiful.

Just fascinated by these trees that are hearty enough to survive the cold and winds atop a mountain.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: I'm pre-posting this with the assumption that we won't have power Saturday morning. I'm hoping to be able to update in the morning if we still have power.
Edit to update: Still have power at 3:30 AM, but the winds are really picking up. The eye came ashore near Galveston around 2:10AM. I'm just mesmerized staring outside at the tress and rain whipping around.

We've had the weather channel on here in Michigan and been thinking about you. It's a really sucky rainy day and the kids don't even wanna go out to take a wee.

That little building is very interesting -- what was it?
