Although winter still seems a long way off in Colorado, the top portion of the highway up Mount Evans is closing for the season at 7:00 a.m. Tuesday.
The Mt. Evans Hill Climb is both the amateurs' and the professional's chance to ride 28 miles up hill and climb up to 14,264 ft. Would you ever do it on a unicycle though?
The early word is that it could have been worse. The steel and aluminum dome atop the Mount Evans observatory was destroyed by high winds over the winter. But damage to the telescope inside may not be as bad as first thought.
