74). American Basin at 11,000'    Near Lake City, Colorado (July 2002)

This was part of my patrol area when I worked as a BLM ranger in the Colorado Rockies back in the 1980s.  To the left is 14,000-foot Handies Peak and to the right is 12,600-foot Cinnamon Pass, one of the highest roads in the U.S.  This area is usually covered by snow in early July but due to a prolonged drought, there was hardly any snow to be seen.  Still, though, it was nice to be back.
