Mount Evans - Sunday

I'm going to be posting things "out of order." After the Regional Event we checked out of our hotel and headed over to a different hotel in Idaho Springs. I can't say that my photos today are "great." But I enjoyed identifying the American Pipet.

The lighting was not great, but I had fun taking the shots of the goats. Here is one of the better ones - cropped down:
