Cabin for Rent

This fabulous cabin, called the Gold King Retreat, can be yours for just $15,000 per week in the winter and a bargain price of $9100 per week in the summer. It’s located at 11,300 feet in sight of Gold King Basin with views that take your breath away! I’ll post some photos of the area in the next couple of days.

Wildflowers at 11290 feet

our recent Colorado road trip, we went to a couple of new places above 11,000 feet. Lucky for us, there were lots of wildflowers! This scene is high above Yankee Boy Basin. The pink flowers are Wild Onions (Allium geyeri); the reddish (upper left) is King’s Crown (Rhodiola integrifolia); you probably recognize the Dandelion and then the other yellow flowers are Cinquefoil but I couldn’t figure out the exact species.
