Denver Vacation

Yes even retired I need a vacation at times.  The following are pictures from a week trip to the Denver area.  I found a round trip ticket on Frontier for $108.00 from Atlanta to Denver.

Echo Lake Lodge  Located at the foot of Mt Evens

View from top of Mt Evens
The road to the top is 14 miles and paved but no guard rails with lots of switchbacks and drop offs that are breath taking to say the least.  Youtube has videos showing the drive up the mountain. 

And there was a little wildlife to be seen.  Mountain Goats

Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep

Kissing Camels
