A climber admires the view from near the summit of Mount Evans in Colorado. Mount Evans, in the Mount Evans Wilderness, is 14,265' in elevation and the 12th highest peak in Colorado. Although a paved road, State Highway 103,climbs the mountain and stops just below the summit there are many challenging routes for climbers. This photo was taken after an ascent on Mount Evan's West Ridge. Evans was originally named Mount Rosalie but was changed to Evans in 1895 for John Evans, the 2nd governor of Colorado who resigned for his part in the Sand Creek Massacre.
