War Eagle Mountain

So, going back in time, Nov 2010, to my second trail ride on the KLX250 to War Eagle Mountain, Turntable Mountain, and Silver City. Pulled out some old photos from War Eagle Mtn area.

See the little red container under the pile of rocks. Some kind of cache with a note written by a fellow who'd spent many years looking up at this mountain from his hard time at the Idaho State Penitentiary. He'd made a vow to come up to the mountain upon his release. I hope he's still out and doing well.

Many old mines to explore

Dude thinks he's got something special there. Dang, that's my street helmet from the '80s hanging off the KLX.

Trail down to another mine camp

Where we take a break

and check out some old buildings

of course there's a crapper

perched directly over the stream to flush the waste away. It would probably splash your ass during high runoff. Whoa to the downstreamers.

And thus the adventures begin. Good times.
