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.

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.

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.
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
Always enjoy your photo's
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.
My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.
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.

Very nice that you three got together foe such a pretty ride. One valuable thing about this forum is it allows us to find other TW owners to share rides with.
You might be the boss but Georgie is the star. No doubt about it!!!!
Long live the internal combustion engine!
