Ram isn't good, but this area of the Silver Divide is outstanding.
I will second what Maverick says above, as well as recommend Wilbur May Lake relatively near by. Regarding Ram Lake, it's nice, but IMO, not outstanding. I actually enjoyed the cross-country route from Virginia to Ram, and the basins above Ram on the way, more then Ram itself.
The Silver Divide is truly great area. A place I can absolutely recommend in the area is Hortense Lake. It's an easy cross-country up the ridge following the lake's outlet stream. It sits in a beautiful granite bowl that you will likely have all to yourselves. Really nice.
