The scenic ride up to Yankee Boy Basin at 12,300 ft of elevation was filled with historic landmarks and natural beauty. At the trails end, a view of blue lake surrounded by 14,000 foot mountain tops and the fragile tundra ecosystem. The fresh mountain air was cool and thin. It was like a step back in time to pass the Atlas Mine, Camp Bird Mine, Thistledown Mine and Torpedo Eclipse Mill in the Uncompahgre National Forest.
a view of the lovely twin falls.
