Mount Evans Rd
Clear Creek County
Nothing in Colorado will make you feel smaller than standing on top of the state’s tallest mountains. Wanna get that sensation without actually hiking up rocky slopes? This is the highest paved road in North America, and a drive to the top will get you views of almost the entire state. And if you’re into spotting wildlife, you’re almost guaranteed to see bighorn sheep, mountain goats, and marmots along the way.
