Yankee Boy Basin, Ouray, Colorado
For those interested in geology, Ouray County is an endless array of formations.  Mountains range from 7000 feet to over 14,000 feet.  The San Juans are the youngest mountains in the continental United States and therefore among the most rugged.  There are ice sculpted peaks and glacial valleys, volcanic riches, dramatic waterfalls, deep canyons, and numerous hot springs in the area.   Books on geology are available at our local bookstore, Buckskin Booksellers.
