Driving down Mt. Evans

That was all it cost to drive on the highest paved road in the lower forty-eight.
What do you get for your ten bucks?
How about an amazing view and a nail biting, no guard rail thrill ride up and down a fourteener.
14,265 feet to be exact.
If you spend any time in the Denver area you need to make this drive, it's well worth it.
The mountain goats are easy to spot, but don't miss the pika.  They are the funny little fur balls
running around among the boulders.

On your way up or down stop at the Echo Lake Lodge and watch the humming birds feed under
the breeze way. Very cool.
Drink plenty of water and don't stay on top too long or you'll get altitude sickness.  We were
hurting half of the next day.  Ouch, that's what happens when sea level folks go alpine.
I shot the drive down with my GoPro Hero HD in video mode 3 720 @60fps.
