   More Summer Scenery 2005...

Images from a weekend trip to Vail and a visit to the Echo Lake area of Mount Evans...

In August we spent a three day weekend in the spectacular Vail area. Vail in the Summer is paradise on Earth, a highly reccomended get away filled with awesome scenery, hiking, biking, shopping and dining. Aside from Vail itself, we also visited Beaver Creek, Piney Lake and a brief stop at Copper Mountain.

Images from a hike in the Mount Evans area near Echo Lake. Mount Evans is a 14,264 foot peak near Idaho Springs not too far from I-70. It is one of the prominent peaks visible from the Denver metro. The Mount Evans scenic byway reaches the summit gaining 7000 feet of altitude in only 28 miles and is the highest paved road in the United States. Due to time constraints we did not get a chance to drive to the summit.... maybe next time.
