Our hike to Columbine Lake was a hike of discoveries around every corner. The first part of the hike was uphill and under trees. Beyond the climb to the first hill, the views opened up. Red mountains to the right, jagged mountain tops just yonder all framing a blossoming meadow. Eventually we caught sight of a creek which eventually led us to a waterfall which fell from none other than Columbine Lake.

Boasting the highest paved road in America, Mount Evan's summit stands tall at 14,265 feet. It is one of two summits in Colorado that you can drive to (for a nominal fee). We drove up many switchbacks and passed many mountain goats to reach the parking lot just below the summit. Just a short walk from the highest parking lot, we reached the Mount Evan's summit to pose for a picture. Mount Evans Scenic Byway opens seasonally and climbs 7000 feet over a distance of 28 miles.
