Mount Evans, Colorado
This was an interesting story. Close friends of ours invited us to stay in a privately owned cabin/home that is the highest elevation dwelling in the lower 48 on the shoulder of Mount Evans, Colorado. Our two families were all set up for plein air painting the mountain on this beautiful afternoon in early spring. Then just as the sun was going down, these beautiful mountain goats strolled through the foreground of our painting. I turned and told them, “This just does not happen!” A calm afternoon at 12,000′ and wildlife that poses on stage.
