Perhaps there are a few readers who remember Dehui Yang. If not here is a refresher post from summer of 2014 when Bobbie and I guided him up to Ice Lake, one of the prettiest places on God’s green earth, even when it’s cloudy.
I won’t go to great lengths reintroducing Dehui (Do-WHEY), how he came to the USA, why he’s here and so on. It’s all in the refresher post. Suffice it to say that we enjoyed our hike and time together and have kept in contact.
Dehui is a busy young man, trying to finish up his Doctorate in Electrical Engineering at School of Mines in Golden, Colo.,—with an emphasis in communications. He had a few days off between Christmas and New Years and wanted to see Lovely Ouray in wintertime, maybe go snowshoeing and take a few snow-hikes. So of course we were excited to see him again and oblige his interests.
Dehui fell in love with this area the last time he was here. He appreciates the rugged beauty of the San Juan Mountains and how easy it is to enjoy them alone, as opposed to the mountains near the megapolis of Denver and the front range.
On our first outing Dehui rented snowshoes so we could access some of the backcountry mining camps near Red Mountain Pass. Weather cooperated, so we had a fine day for photography and outdoor exercise. I love how the old Yankee Girl Mine-head “pops” against winter snow… a real “calendar shot.”
