Mt. Evans road

The road is closed at Summit Lake adding 2 plus miles and 500 vertical feet each way to The Tour d'Abyss.

I also posted this in TH conditions.

I was disappointed with tree color in that area this weekend.
Most aspen are turning directly to brown due to the drought.
About a quarter turned already.

I was on Evans on Saturday and observed along the road up from Idaho Springs that only about 10% of the aspens have turned. Looking across I-70 there was some great color variety. I'm thinking the peak may be in a week or two.
