This photograph was taken in August 2010 on Mount Evans in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Mount Evans is one of the handful of Rocky Mountain peaks over 14000 feet where it is actually possible to drive up to the summit. Summit Lake is nearly at the peak, and a popular place to stop and climb the rest of the way in the summer months.
