You don’t see that everyday!


While taking in the sights around Denver, Colorado last week we decided to drive up Mt. Evans for the thrill of being at 14,000 feet above sea level. There is also something wondrous about switchback roads at high elevation with no guard rails. Falling off the mountain would be easy to do if you’re not careful.
As we stopped to take pictures and enjoy the beautiful views we kept seeing three mysterious cars. One was identifiable the other two had squiggly swirls on them.

Curiosity of course got the better of us and at the summit we caught up with the caravan. These were three BMW hybrid test cars outfitted with sensors and computers measuring all sorts of parameters.
