Here is another day of pictures. We had gone up Mineral Creek. Mineral Creek follows a stream along  great overlook roads. We diverted off unto Poughkeepsie Gulch trail later. I wanted to see if I could make it up this difficult rated trail in my mostly stock Jeep Rubicon. It was a beautiful trail but when we got to this watery spot

some of the rocks would have hung us up and we were traveling alone.http://keithbarnes.s...eek/i-BNbwBkN/A


 So we backtracked and continued up Mineral Creek trail to the California Gulch Trail. It is a beautiful and easy trail with dramatic overlooks. The three trails had lots of mining ruins, animals, and magnificent scenery.

Lake Como is awesome. While the rest of my group came up from poughkeepsie gulch I was at Lake Como eating lunch and running around taking photographs. The lake literally changes color with the sun and sky condition.
