In Search of Fenced Twigs and Placerville

Went for a ride in search of a geocache (Fenced Twigs) that I've been eyeing since last year, and to the old mining town (almost a ghost town) of Placerville, Idaho. Did not reach the cache as it was way, way to brushy to attempt a hike to the cache. But an adventure non-the-less. Had more success on my side trip to Placerville. I will spend more time visiting the old mines around Placerville some other time.

Trailered the TW up Harris Creek and unloaded half-way between Horseshoe Bend, Id, and Harris Creek Summit. Lots of family history at this site. Paid my respects at the site of my wife's brother who died here in 1996 in an auto crash.

Here's the video/photo of the ride. Had about 20 something minutes of video, but edited (shortened...alot), and added some photo's to make the video not so boring. Hope you enjoy.


And the long video only version.

Love Idaho riding. Next time we will go all the way over to Fairfield now that snow is gone for burgers and have another friend meet us with a trailer.

Sure is some great riding over in your neck of the woods. The extra snow this year did put some early ride plans on hold, but there's plenty of riding elsewhere. Hope you do some photo's and video on your next trip. Planned to go camping and riding last weekend over yonder, but plans changed at the last minute, so it was a no-go. Plan on camping and riding sort of in your direction later this summer in the Ross and Neuman Peak area north of Fairfield. No date and time set yet, but if we do I'll let you know.
Thanks for sharing Admiral, always fun to ride along w/you. Altho I am a lil worried about you as the end of the road seemed to be the cemetary!

Truth is the SD Card Memory ran out at this point. But you pointed out something I had not intended nor noticed until now. I started my ride at the site of my wife's brother's auto crash (Cross at site), and it ended at the cemetery, though not where he is laid to rest. Maybe some weird hidden meaning, of which I have no idea. Possibly a continuation of my "Dead things as seen from my TW" posting and I didn't know it at the time.
