Ute Creek

August 5, 2012

More from the Weminuche back in June: two views of Ute Creek, the massive drainage which we used to approach the Continental Divide. Ute Creek and its forks are really extremely typical Colorado high country scenery (definitely not a bad thing): glacier-carved valleys nestled among broad-shouldered alpine ridges. Lower Ute Creek had a couple very nice gorges carved into volcanic breccia, but these were sadly unphotogenic at midday. These views are not sequential: above is from our last night, looking down West Ute to the Rio Grande Valley and Rio Grande Pyramid; below is looking up at Ute Ridge on our first morning at the confluence of the three forks.
