Ouray Colorado Wildflowers in Yankee Boy Basin look a little behind schedule in 2011.  Typically, wildflowers peak during the third week of July (July 24th). Here are pictures from July 1, 2011 from Twin Falls and above.  Notice the snow coverage and beautiful lush green foliage.  Yankee Boy Basin is filled with seasonal waterfalls and streams.  There are a few flowers out now, but, the majority are still developing!
