Visit beautfiful Evergreen, Echo Lake and Mount Evans


We begin by exploring Red Rocks Amphitheater in the early morning. The views of Denver from the amphitheater of Denver are majestic. The Visitor Center describes the 300 million years of history that it took to form the rocks, as well as all of the notable musicians that have played in the amphitheater.

Venturing on to Evergreen, we will gaze at the spectacular mountain views and stroll at Evergreen Lake. Leaving Evergreen we continue our journey to Echo Lake.

Continuing on to Mount Evans we take the highest paved road in North America and ascend to more than 14, 000 feet above sea level.

From Mount Evans, a quick stop in Idaho Springs will give you a chance for a coffee, a snack and a stroll around the town as you learn about the mining history of the area as well as tall tales of interesting old Western bandits. For example, Jesse James and his gang often enjoyed the Hot Springs at Idaho Springs when they were in town. From Idaho Springs we will head back toward Denver.
