San Juan Mountains, CO

Camp near Stoney Pass preparing to hike two of the nearby mountains. Our favorite spot was being used by the shepherd who was herding hundreds of sheep between Sheep and Canby Mountains.

Camping in American Basin
It was so darn pretty here that we stayed for two nights.
Hiked Handies Peak from this camp.

Met a backpacker near our camp in American Basin and gave him a ride into Silverton the next morning.
