Jeeping with the Bynums - Day 2 - Yankee Boy Basin, Ouray Colorado

the road is filled with jeeps of all kinds; so many trails to choose from in this area.


you go through Ouray and  follow hwy 550 to gold camp road eventually there will be a turn off for Yankee Boy


It's not too long before the ride gets interesting


Our pilot ( our son, Russell) and our co-pilot ( his wife, Lara) and their jeep



this stunning area is at Twin Falls surrounded by the Mt Sneffels Wilderness Area; we are around 11,000 ft elevation and the wildflowers are amazing considering it is early August!


Twin Falls


ever hear of God's country?  Well, this area fits that description perfectly


another set of falls down from twin falls
Some of prettiest sights we have ever seen in Colorado ...time to make our way to the summit, though it would be real easy just to hang out in the twin falls area for hours

the summit---so serene and beautiful

view of lake and road
A good place to sit and take it all in :)
