Things you expect to see on Mt Evans at 13,000'

This isn't one of them.

I think I would have passed out. It was surprising enough encountering someone on a unicycle going down Lookout.

I see this guy on Lookout all the time. I am assuming it is the same guy. How many crazy unicyclists can there be around here?

I've seen a unicycle on Lookout and Independence Pass during RTR a few years ago.

I saw the dude on Lookout Mt a couple years ago.
It has been too long to remember what he looked like.

Also, riding a unicycle downhill is almost as strenuous as riding one uphill. That's a huge ride.

I've seen him going up Golden Gate, maybe he was on his way to Blackhawk?

He's a Golden local, I work with his mother in law. His 8 yr old son is almost as good.

Of course with him and Steve riding around on his old bikes http://www.goldenoldy.org/ we are used to seeing some different "cyclists" here.
