Drive south from downtown Ouray on Main Street, which is US Hwy 550. At the south end of town, the road turns sharply right (west). After a couple hundred yards, it turns left until youâ€™re pointed east. Thatâ€™s where you make the turn to the right where you see a sign for Yankee Boy Basin-Ouray County 361.
BE CAREFUL! and have fun.
This graded road goes to Yankee Boy Basin (one of the most amazing alpine flower fields in the U.S.) On the way to the basin, the road is very exhilarating. It is narrow, has many curves, and really great overlooks such as the one in this photo.
