Default Yankee Boy Basin: Colorado Scenery

A place I've wanted to go for some years. It requires a four wheel drive, high clearance, short wheel base vehicle. We got up there during the short 2 week period where the wildflowers are blooming. (Yes, I'm aware some of them are crooked. Just didn't have the time to fix them.)
