American Basin 2015-07

Late July is wildflower season in the high country of the San Juan Mountains.  I took a six-day camping trip to American Basin and the high basins around Ouray to capture this beauty and found the flowers to be in very good condition.

Spring comes late to American Basin, high in the San Juan Mountains just off of the famous Alpine Loop road.  But when it finally arrives, the flowers in the basin can be spectacular.

While camping overnight in the American Basin, I captured a moonlight shot of the mountains and a sky full of stars and wind-blown clouds.

The high basins around Ouray were also in great condition, with flowers in profusion
