The temperature has been warm and the snow is melting fast, which makes me anxious to get on the Jeep trails. As much as I enjoy skiing, I love being in my Jeep more. Gold King Basin is accessible off of the road up to Alta Lakes, entrance a short drive from here up highway 145.
Gold King Mine, discovered in 1877 was mined for gold, silver, copper and lead. This is almost 12,000 feet in elevation.
