Dripping Springs Mine Complex

Erich and Tom take the ATV's as far as the trail will let them, and then hike the rest of the way to visit the mines by Dripping Springs. The views from outside the right fork of the mines.

Cowboy Camp

Each year cattle are brought in and grazed on the west side of Hurrah. A lone cowboy is assigned to their watch. Today, Erich and Tom visit his encampment in a box canyon not far from the Catacombs.

A Little Bit Less Anti Cline

As Tom and Kobae were hiking down the trail when a large cracking sound, then a boom, echoed across the canyon. Part of the Anti Cline had fallen in a cloud of dust. (Click on picture to enlarge)

Linda and Linny

Linda and Linny return from a morning on the river with Tag A Long. Little bit tough navigating with the floods to get people back to Base Camp.

Kobae, Now or Later

It's brutally hot. For three nights consecutive, Kobae elected to sleep in the lodge and find a hallway with a breeze. I hear him clopping around at night changing locations. Last night he went in the bunk bed room and crawled under a bed to sleep on the carpet. All right, no clopping tonight. One thing about Kobae, you deal with him now, or later.

Night Approaches

Bats appear from slot canyons beneath the Anti-Cline, crickets begin the nightly serenade, and if you stay quiet after a bird shares his song, you'll hear him respond to his own echo from a canyon across the river. He has found his soul mate. Everyone finds someone out here, and sometimes, you even find yourself.

We're Lying

Tom, Bishop, Chewey, and Kobae, have worked all day getting the rock to balance on the stand. No it's not the same rock in the previous picture. Ok, it is, but we moved it from that stand to this one. Looks better doesn't it? Nice work guys.

Hogan (Hulk)

Six futon beds inside. Just lay your sleeping bad on top of them and you're set.

Two more Hogan's under construction. Paul and Heroes.
