Overview: A very interesting area to navigate with a number of creek crossings which could be tricky depending on the amount of rain in the last few days (you may get wet); The payoff for negotiating these water crossings and staying on trail is an opportunity to visit and view two high altitude meadow area basins ("lower" at 3.2mls in at 10,744ft and "upper" at 3.7mls in at 11,135ft; These two basins reside within the Mount Sneffels Wilderness with the "Upper" Blaine Basin directly NNE below, looking almost straight up at Mount Sneffels summit at 14,150ft; Both basins offer near and distant views of other high peaks along with wildflowers, waterfalls, mine tailing, and two creek branches that frame the round top cirque in front of you;
