Yankee Boy Basin Album
Yankee Boy Basin is an 8 mile drive out of  Ouray.  In July of 2015
the wildflowers were probably as good as it gets.
Monkshood Wildflower
We start the drive back
Approaching Ouray
The drive starts with a river
crossing

We end at Ouray
After about 5 miles we stop at the
Twin Falls
The road was a typical mountain
road which is snowed in all winter
and has very little maintenance.
The road follows a steep canyon
with many one lane areas
