Columbine on Rock

Yankee Boy Basin
Colorado, USA

The Yankee Boy Basin is a place you may have never heard of before. Or perhaps you have heard too much.

High in the Colorado Rockies there is a place of wonder and amazement, and it is called The Yankee Boy Basin. Located outside of Ouray Colorado, there is but a brief time each year, typically, when the basin is in total bloom. This set of columbine, the official Colorado state flower, was nestled alongside of this lovely lichen covered rock. A late afternoon thunder shower had just passed through, and rain drops were left on the leaves. 

 It is a peaceful place, and I hope to return to visit in peace soon. If you take the time to visit, I trust you'll do it in peace as well.

See Ya On the Trail!
