Up the valley more was Mt williams an at the base of that was a old placer homestead.They were taking gravel from the river an sluiceing it threw a very large homemade gold machine. You'd probley never see the place until they logged it which was within the year.

Wow, more great pics lizard.

Those cabins are a lot nicer looking (more sturdy too) than those shacks that we explored earlier in the day. Definitely some cool exploring in that area -- you could make a week long trip out of it and still not see everything

I just wish I had taken pictures of the cabin and bridge Aaron(Big_Ern) and I had found on a side trail. We where able to get to the other side of the river. The cabin was in really good condition except for some of slanted floor lol.

Dam I have to get me a Quad !!!

One of the highlights of the trip was taking John's quad on a night run on the mud flats with Ken and Danny.

We found some mud that was slick as ice. Great fun!!!!

Kick ass!! Im going to have to bring my bike on ther next trip like this, theres too much neat stuff to be missed otherwise!

Theres a place on this earth
my people call home
Theres hills and hollers everywhere
and lots of room to roam
Were noted for our hard times
in God's greatest creation
Were the people
of the hillbilly nation
