I had camped at the Silver Creek trailhead which leads up to Red Cloud and Sunshine Peak, However, I had hoped I'd find opportunities to photograph wildflowers in this basin near Lake City, Colorado.

After navigating a shelf road, several stream crossings, and some huge rocks and bumpy roads, I finally made it to the small dirt pull off for this site. <br />
