    All unloaded and ready to go. A couple of things we are interested in doing when we go camp/riding is to find fire lookouts, geocaching with the GPS (basically, treasure hunting)...and the unplanned, unexpected places.



    Here's our overall riding plan:



    Evening-day one: ride to Ol'e Summers Grave cahce; Day two-ride to Hornet Reservoir Cache, and finally Cuddy Point Lookout and Cache (this was a 2 for 1, old lookout site and a cache).



    Oh, before I get started, thought it looked warm, we are at about 7,500 ft. and it was 57 degrees out when we got to the cabin, and 39 degrees that night. When we left home it had been in the 90's the pase several day's, even one day over 100 degrees! Good thing we brought jackets!



    Road from cabin to Summers Grave cache.





    Go this way I guess! (Don't always need a GPS to guide the way).

    Unexpected find...an old mining site.



    Sorry, the site only allows to post so many pictures at a time so I have to keep breaking the report up into sections. I don't know how to get around the picture posting restriction.

    Evening ride continued 2.



    On to Summers Grave...Oops, got stopped here. I could have gotten the TW around it, but the picture doesn't show how steep and slippery the snow drift is. No way around it either...so we hiked the last half mile.





    Getting close. The unexpected...Summers Grave Rental Cabin. It is no longer available since 2007 due to low rental usage. Cabin was not locked and had all the stuff still inside (camp stove, eating and cooking utensils, beds).





    Jim Summers Grave Site. Born in KY, died here in 1893. Summers-Namesake for the Cabin and Cache name. I noticed from some online articles such as High School Graduations, there have been quite a few people in the nearby town of Council, ID, with the last name of Summers. I wonder if they are descentants.

    Evening ride 3



    Oh, and we found the cache too!





    After finding the cache we rode down the trail a little farther and found a hunting camp (Rabbit Camp, adjoining Corona Camp, and Camp Corrals).

    Evening Ride part 4



    When we got back to the TW and ATV's we discovered an alternate lower road to summers grave. Would have been nice to see this earlier and saved us some huffing and puffing. Oh well, good exercise!





    While heading back to camp, found another miners cabin (Bluebird).







    Getting close to camp and the end of the day's ride.





    Good days ride and saw a lot of interesting places and things. Time to get some grub and shut eye for tomorrow's ride. Hornet Reservoir and Cuddy Point.

    Wow! Looks like you had an awesome trip. I'm going to have to go check that area out.



    BTW I dropped the "atoyforeveryseason" user name. Too awkward.
