Take a ride with us on a day trip into the San Juan Mountains in Western Colorado. An excerpt from the U.S. Forest Service: Yankee Boy Basin is nestled beneath some of the San Juan’s most breathtaking peaks: Potosi Peak, Teakettle Mountain, Cirque Mountain, Stony Mountain, Gilpin Mountain, and the most well-known, Mount Sneffels, which is over 14,000 feet in elevation. The drive to this green-carpeted valley presents spectacular alpine scenery, abundant wildflowers, waterfalls, a high-walled canyon and old town sites in a once-booming mining area. This is a great drive out of Ouray that can be combined with a side trip to Box Canyon Falls early in the drive, and the drive over Imogene Pass. Medium-to-high-clearance vehicles are required to reach the Basin and 4-wheel drive is recommended beyond the basin to Mt. Sneffels trailhead. From Yankee Boy Basin, many summit the 14,000’ Mount Sneffels or hike over the pass into the Mount Sneffels Wilderness to Blue Lake Basin.

After 23 years of corporate life, I decided to pursue my passions in the off road industry. Specializing in marketing, visibility, relationship and brand building, and acting as MetalCloak's field marketing representative, I have travelled across the country (quite a few times!) using Metalcloak’s CTI (Corner Travel Index) to educate the off road enthusiast. I have also worked with Jeep Jamboree USA as event staff, to provide additional value and education to its participants. I've been fortunate enough to work with both international as well as domestic media; have attended most of the off-road events across our country; and have driven a wide variety of vehicles. I'm a certified PADI scuba instructor and have a BS in Computer Science.
