Un-named creek from Minotaur Lake next to the trail - the hillside is VERY steep

Minotaur Lake was so clear - and turquiose
View looking Northwest from ridge above Minotaur Lake - I think the peaks in the distance might be Black Mountain to the right, and Monte Cristo and Columbia peaks towards the left

Un-named peak to the west of the ridge above Minotaur Lake
The "goat path" that led us up to the ridge - it is was much steeper than it looks.
These interesting flowers were on the way down from the ridge - Carly said her friend calls them "Dr Seuss flowers". They are white pasqueflowers that have gone to seed.
