I have been told there are populations of bighorn sheep and mountain goats on Mt Evans west of Denver. I will be traveling to the area the 3rd week of June, and was hoping to maybe see some sheep during my trip to Colorado.

Anybody been to Mt Evans that can talk about where to find the sheep? Whats the road like to get to the top? I know they talk about it being the highest road in the USA, but then why do people always go to Pikes Peak instead?

Not afraid to do some hiking and or work with a spotting scope if somebody has any other good recommendations for finding sheep in the area. Have also spent time in the past out by Georgetown and Empire spotting for sheep without success.

Any tips for sheep viewing in June would be helpful. Thanks.
