If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, might I suggest taking a trip up Mount Evans Road.
The road, which scales 6,000 feet, is only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day depending on conditions.
The road is about 9 miles long and winds through some of the best Colorado has to offer. Getting to the base of the road takes about one hour from Denver and is well worth the drive.
Directions from the Aurora Sentinel offices here.
