    Wildcat Gulch Loop Ride

    Last week, BkCntryCrwlr, RoninBoise, and myself took a short afternoon ride. And Georgie too! Our route took us up Wildcat Gulch rd towards Idaho City, where we had a scooby snack, then back to the rigs through New Centerville down Grimes Creek. It was a easy leisurely ride.

    Didn't take many pictures, but here's a few I did take.

    Georgie relaxing and waiting to go


    Once we got up on the ridge south of Warm Springs Point lookin' west, we could see Boise Ridge and Shafer Butte. Foreground was a fire within
    the last year or two.


    Shafer Butte zoomed in


    After our scooby snacks, and before heading out of town, we stopped and took a photo or two of the most photographed corner in Idaho City.
    Most Photographed Corner in Idaho City | Oh, the Places We See . . ..
    It's called The Sluice Box: Closed with a caretaker. Apparently for sale? Welcome - The Sluice Box
    All the years I've been in to visit Idaho City, I've never seen it open.





    The American Picker's guys would love to get in here I'm sure. Heck, even I would!


    That's it for photo's.

    Short video


    We didn't see any "Wildcats" on this ride, but we did see 1 "Wild Turkey", which was not very photogenic I might add

    Take Care You'all

    Great pics!
    At 30 seconds at the over look are those trees damaged from fire or pine beetles? Can't tell from the video.
    If beetles it is unbelievable how many trees are being affected here in the west!

    Good times! Thanks for sharing them with us. I like how BkCntryCrwlr painted his Cyclerack to match the frame. Looks good.

    In this case, the damage to the tree's was caused by a fire in July of last year (2013). I've not seen too much Pine Beetle damage in this part of Idaho (Boise) as I have in other parts. In the area's where the Beetles attacked, the damage to the tree's was horrible.

    I don't remember the exact cause of the fire, but at one time it was mentioned that it was human caused.

    In this photo, you can see some of the bushes are still darkened from when they were burned.

    The color of his cyclerack was something that caught my eye right off as well. Hopefully Georgie didn't scratch it when she jumped up on his TW! Oops!
