Geocache Description:

This virtual cache is at the summit of Mt. Evans, one of Colorado's 14ers. 14,264' to be exact!

Don't be too discouraged, you can drive to within 15 minutes of the cache (summit). Be sure to give yourself plenty of time though, the air is very thin. Breathe deep and steady, take your time and you should do just fine.

The road to Mt. Evans is the highest paved road in North America and second highest in the world! Drive carefully!

I've been a bit disappointed at the sloppy responses I've had to this Cache. This is a virtual cache so the canisters are not mine. They won't do even if you sign them. I expect you to email me a description of what you found at the very, topmost, absolutely highest point. The two bench marks are not at the very tip top, what I expect you to find, is.

The weather was a bit wild when we were up there so the coordinates may not be perfect. The summit, however is very obvious and easy to determine.

Be watchful for lightning, claiming this cache isn't worth getting zapped!

You'll likely see Mountain Goats on the shoulders of the mountains. The scenery is unbelievable. Don't forget your camera.

It would be fun to see some of your photos here.

There is a $10.00/car fee to enter the area, but it was the best ten bucks I ever spent. Of course this cache won't be reachable after the snow flies.
