In under two hours you can go from being in the heart of downtown Denver to the top of Mount Evans in the Rocky Mountains. Mount Evans is not the tallest peak in Colorado, but it does possess the highest paved road in North America! That is impressive indeed, especially since you can take your car to over 14,000 feet. Not only are the views at the top incredible, but the drive up (and down) is also quite breathtaking. It's one of the many great day trips that take you out of the city and into the mountainous wilderness that Colorado is famous for.
