Checking out Mt Evans
26 Jul, 2008
Today we ventured out to Mt. Evans. It is the worlds highest paved road sitting at 14,240 feet with amazing views around it. After the highway open on May 23rd, Gag’s and his crew made it out to ride Mt Evans in June and the pictures he sent me were awesome to check out.
Here’s a photo of Gag’s himself on Mt Evans ollie’ing over a boulder back in June. Unfortunately since then the snow has melted and only small patches of snow remain. But in early June the Gag’s crew had a sweet time of enjoying snowboarding at 14,000 feet.

We went up to Mt. Evans to check it out, see what snow was left since Gag’s had rode it and venture onto the top of a mountain we hadn’t been.
It was refreshing to see a big Spacecraft sticker on the sign to Mt Evans
The road took a lot longer than expected and I drove slow with some nice drops on the sides. However there were still snow patches throughout the drive and here’s some photos showing off that there is still small amounts of snow that are possible to ride. There was one track made by a rider or skier that you could still see but I didn’t grab a photo of it.
Beautiful lakes on the way up
the mountain goats along the drive.
