    Holy hell, lol. That’s cool but I’d rather pull Kit Carson’s old revolver out of that.

    These are the types of posts I love to read about, and I must admit the ride reports and such without pics usually gets skipped over.

    I'm pretty much a history freak. Everywhere I go I try to immerse myself in the local history. I always look out for the historical markers and if I can manage it, I try to read up on places before I get there. Typically I have a general direction on my trips out west but I don't always have a planned route. So sometimes I find myself in backwoods hamlets and tiny mountain towns far off the beaten path. Once I'm there, I try to delve at least into the surface waters of the past. The western states Backcountry discovery routes are an awesome resource for discovering these far away places locked within vast wilderness strongholds. I keep getting carried away...
    These are all within the borders of Idaho. fullsizeoutput_812.jpeg fullsizeoutput_827.jpeg fullsizeoutput_820.jpeg fullsizeoutput_817.jpeg fullsizeoutput_819.jpeg fullsizeoutput_80f.jpeg fullsizeoutput_836.jpeg fullsizeoutput_83f.jpeg fullsizeoutput_96b.jpeg fullsizeoutput_96c.jpeg fullsizeoutput_824.jpeg

    I'm thinking I might start planning on excursions into the west following leads and looking for old settlements and ghost towns to ride near. Maybe bring a gold pan...

    Hi Lee, I have a couple of properties in the foothills of the Rockies (one at 7,500 and one at 8,000 ft elevation) west of Las Vegas 30 and 45 minutes. I’m at my ranch in Oklahoma presently but I’ll be back in the ‘Land Of Enchantment’ mid July. From our property we ride straight to the Carson National Forest. You’ll be more than welcome to join us to ride, and we have accommodations should you want to stay a weekend!! :)

    I’m heading out Friday morning for a two week road trip and along the way I’ll be visiting St. Elmo Colorado. The most intact “ghost town” I’ve ever seen before. There is a utv trailhead there in which you can hit the NF and camping along the way cross a half dozen passes in a single weekend. I’d like to do that some day!!

    On one of our attempts to find Bradshaws grave i noticed something on my Topo App called Lehman's Mill and decided to check it out. Glad i did. A piece of history slowly returning to the desert...

    IMG_3861.JPG

    All the trails into and out were overgrown (in the desert!) except for the "main highway" down the bottom of the canyon that gets rearranged with every monsoon season.

    Had no ideal it was there, but some research shows the history...

    Lehman Mill, AZ, research by APCRP
