Goose Creek Wilderness
Goose Creek lies nestled in the forested valley covered in a snow blanket. Sitting 10,600 ft. / 3,230 m high up, this is a formidable and difficult area to reach on the San Juan Mountains in the Weminuche Wilderness of the Rio Grande National Forest. Adjacent to the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (to the left of this image) this is just south over the ridge (on the right) from Beautiful Mountain.
This area is a long way off the beaten path, with no easy way to get to it. On the right side of this photo, you can see Fisher Mountain and the edge of Antelope Park. This is prime Colorado Wilderness! For the full story on this image visit the corresponding page on Where Eagles Fly
