The Morrison Ranch is about a mile up the road, downstream. Here is one of the irrigation waterwheels the ranchers used for their uses. There are still a few up and down the river. This is the only one accessible on this trip.
Just before I reach the Morrison Ranch, I come upon what they call "the bone yard". Lots of old farm implement items. Old and older!

First building at the Morrison Ranch. With the little research I've done, I know this was the root cellar. Morrison actually lived in it at some point also.

I was surprised at how well the BLM has maintained the buildings on the ranches. I did see a pickup truck at Birch Creek Ranch and I've heard there are caretakers who live here. All makes sense as to why the building are in such good shape.
Just past the Morrison Ranch is a river take out for rafters. Due to low water levels in summer, most of the rafting is done in the spring or early summer, depending on river level
At the north end of the Morrison Ranch is a remote airstrip. Because of the Wild and Scenic River designation, it's only for emergencies.
On the way back, I took the time to make a quick trip to Jordan Craters. Interesting and hot!!
That's all for this trip folks
