Wildflowers at American Basin 1

American Basin

On the downhill side of summiting Handies Peak, one of Colorado's 14ers, I paused to take in the landscape of American Basin near Lake City. With columbine and lupine waving in the gentle breeze, I think this image captures the beauty of this area that is well known for colorful summer flowers. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
