Yankee Boy Basin

The Yankee Boy Basin and the wildflowers is a magnificent area to see. This photo was taken on the 4th of July.

Beautiful mountains

This is looking south from Yankee Boy Basin. If you click the photo, on the right side you can see another 4x4 trail going up to Governer's Basin.


The twin waterfalls at Yankee Boy is one of the most photographed places in Colorado

    Great photos and off-road tips. I used to live in Ouray and these pics made me homesick. Can't wait to get back.

    It would've been quite a surprise to have that Marmot try sticking his head up through the hole while you're using the facilities!! Great Page! Super Photos!!
