Yankee Boy, Animas, & Huricane

Had an epic day today exploring the high country. Found a lot of snow but the day was perfect. Upper 60ís, not a could in the sky, no wind. Went up Yankee Boy Basin first. Then went down to Silverton and took County Rd 2 up to Animas Forks. Last went up Hurricane Pass. All of these were basically drive to where the snow blocks the road then hike in. Going to post a few pictures now.

This massive washout was the main blockage on Yankee Boy.

This was on Yankee Boy but there were downed trees like this everywhere I went from the avalanches.

Re: Yankee Boy, Animas, & Huricane

This is on County Rd 2 about a mile from Animas Forks. Probable the deepest snow I found.

A lot of fast running water too.

Re: Yankee Boy, Animas, & Huricane

That is Corkscrew Pass right in front of the FJ. Surprisingly Hurricane is open almost to the top. I was tired of sitting in the car at this point so I parked here and tried to hike up Hurricane. Didnít quite make it.

Re: Yankee Boy, Animas, & Huricane

This is where I gave up and turned back. It was close to 5:30.

Re: Yankee Boy, Animas, & Huricane

Last picture. This is looking down from where I turned back on Hurricane. You can make out Corkscrew and maybe the FJ if you zoom in. I made it pretty far.

Re: Yankee Boy, Animas, & Huricane

Awesome pics - thanks for posting! Any idea if Imogene, Black Bear and Poughkeepsie are making progress?

From what I read they are planning to do Ophir first starting in mid-June followed by Imogene and then Black Bear. Ophir is open to the Summit from the 550 side. Here is a picture of the entrance to Imogene and it does not appear they have started anything on it yet. I have not heard anything on Poughkeepsie. If I had not broken my strut I would have done some more exploring today but alas I am grounded.
