Hysterical! Mnt. Evans looks beautiful right now, but man do I hate the drive up! White knuckle grip all the way! I prefer the hike! ;) It's nice to see other Coloradans on here! Consider adding your picture to the Rocky Mountain Wildlife Watch Mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8465...

Super spotting, Melony! Since you know the identity of this animal, will you please go ahead and fill in the scientific name (and other details) so this one can enter the database and leave the unidentified list? Thanks! :-)
