Awesome views - beautiful basin - driving to and from Lake City took as long as the entire hike!

Love it . I like the Grizzly creek round trip! American Basin is grat to look at though and someday I'd like to ski those coolies.

Beautiful hike through American Basin. Had the summit to ourselves for a few minutes. On the descent, went over and climbed Pt. 13,688 to get another perspective of Handies. Nice hike on a gorgeous morning!

Left at 4:30 AM so we could shoot sunset at Sloan Lake (see picture to be posted shortly in image gallery). Beautiful morning. Great hike to the top from Sloan Lake. Enjoyed the clear view (except for a fire in the Uncompaghre Wilderness) from the top for nearly an hour. Tundra in full bloom near the top. First, but not our last, 14er!

Traversed the ridge over to Whitecross Mt. The changing rock on the way over to Whitecross was fascinating. If I were a marmot, I think this would be a great basin to live in!

Slogged up the grizzly gulch since we were camped there after tackling Redcloud and Sunshine the day before. Descended the American Basin. What a beautiful place!

American Basin, what can you say? Absolutely beautiful!!! Remote and no people! One of the most beautiful places I've seen in Colorado.

Had the basin and mountain all to myself.

Quite a bit snow.

First 14er for our teenager son and daughter & son's friend. Beautiful day. Awesome views. Odd seeing deer so high above timberline!

Short and sweet. Good views. This was the start of completing the Lake City five. If you are a flatlander(TX) like me, this is a good one to start on.

On our way from Lake City to Silverton via Cinnamon Pass, my family didn't mind hanging out in the basin while I enjoyed this nice hike. 1:22 to the top.
