    Had a little free time, so the wife and I decided to test some of our equipment from the winter hiatus. (And some new stuff too!)

    Besides some great riding, we got to see Tiddie Springs, couple of old miner/ranching cabin sites (learned some history), geocaching, and got to see some wild mustangs to boot.

    Hope you enjoy.



    Video first





    First things first, found a little issue with the clutch cable on my pre-ride inspection. Good thing I bought a new one over the winter.

    Broken clutch cable out on the trail may have made things interesting.





    Then we loaded up the new to us "Dual-Purpose" mule trailer. Gonna come in handy hauling the ATV's, TW and the 4 leg mules.





    A few views on the way to the springs













    About 6 miles in, we made it to Tiddie Springs. As you can see, Tiddie or Tiddy Springs is spelled differently. Maps spell it one way, sign spells it another.

    Who cares about the spelling anyway. I don't.





    Looked like an old structure next to the springs





    Departed the springs heading east and caught a great view of Hayden Peak (I think) S.E. of Silver City, ID.





    Lots of cool rock formations too

    Found a few geocaches along the way too





    Ran into our first old cabin site. Nothing special on the outside. You can tell it had been "upgraded" over the years





    View of the inside. Drywall ripped off exposing wood on the inside. And this is where it got interesting.





    Couldn't quite make out the writing at the very top, but easy to read the date written in 1922





    Found some interesting newspaper "wallpaper". Tried to find a date on the newspapers, but couldn't





    However, with a little investigative work from the box score of the baseball game, I guessed the newspaper was from around 1929.

    Teams were the Philadelphia A's vs. the Chicago White Sox. The game was played on August 24th, 1929. Click here for the box score

    and here for a little history of the Philadelphia, Kansas City, and Oakland A's.





    About a mile later we came across the second cabin site. People were already here so we didn't stay long, but the door to the cabin was open

    so I took a few photo's of the inside. This cabin appears to be used by ranchers as it was in fairly good shape.





    Wife and I took another timeout and found another cache in the area









    And one of Georgie at the next cache down the road a ways

    Our ride is just about over, but we still have some good riding on the way back to camp









    With a couple miles to go, I was kind of in la la land not paying attention to too much, when all of a sudden off to my left, I spot some

    wild mustangs. Kinda cool in my book.





    They were nice enough to just stand there so I could get a couple photo's. I feel like getting a haircut right now for some reason!





    During the night a cold front moved through and rocked the camper around some. Can't hardly tell a storm blew through during the night

    by the view the next morning





    But then again, there was some evidence!









    Well, I hope enjoy looking as much as we did riding.



    Take care all.

    I love riding to see springs in nature. I really like the small ones that have been developed a bit and then protected like that one. There is usually a bit of history to discover at those sites. Looked like a great ride.

    Those pictures are great, looks like you two had a fun day out. I'd love to visit your area.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Thank you for sharing! It looks like you had a great time. Must have been really cool to find all that old stuff in the cabin!

    We should keep in better touch Admiral. I was in that area also.. I headed up the road to silver city as far as I could. There was a mess of atv riders up there.

    Wow, I'm glad you found the cable before you hit the trails! I enjoyed the video, and the history you found in the cabins. That was an impressive bit of detective work figuring out when the paper was published. Good job! Judging from the big smiles on your faces I would say the two of you had a good time. Thanks for taking us along.

    Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed to photo's.



    @ Mike (Heyduke), I think I might be back in that area with some of my adult kids exploring more of the area on 29-30 March. Weather permitting!! I should be within eyesight of the main road between Murphy and Reynolds near the Tiddie Springs 4wd road intersection. Rabbit Creek road I think. Goes by a few different names. Just in case your in the neighborhood.



    @ Rocky, I do have the tracks for my loop ride this day. Shoot me an email ([email protected]) and I'll email you the unfiltered gpx track. View other good trails in the area as well. I'll make sure to keep the gps on and get more tracks if I make it back to the area later this month.
