View Full Version : Thanksgiving Exploring

10-15-2014, 01:53 PM
Decided to skip turkey and get out and explore a little.
Ended up in the Sandon area.

We camped, explored and found a ton of old stuff.
Heather loved the fall colours.

We headed up Idaho Peaks for a look... we intended to camp near the top but the snow falling put a scare in me...good thing, it snowed a foot plus overnight.The road is steep, off camber and a single lane. We were at 2130 meters in the truck and camper.
Headed into Sandon for a look around...great place, lots to see. Old trucks buses ,town and a steam train. Needing a place to camp we headed up the road to Cody. We met a guy working on the pen-stocks for the power plant. He gave us permission to camp in the ghost town and a lot of local history. His truck just turned over 3,200,000 miles on the clock.
He confided the location of lots of old mines and buildings. We climbed a lot of mountains and found a shit load of cool places.
He even shared a hidden jem that nobody has been in for 50 years. It was abandoned in 1908. The white stuff are stalactites that have been forming for over 100 years.

And all that fuzzy stuff in the pics are spiders...they spend the winter in masses to keep alive.
