We visited the Big Iron mine – it’s under current claim, but the owners allow people to visit the old open pit mine. Watch out for open shafts in the area, though! Sheep Creek ride 2021.
We had a USFS permit to use a road into private land and we got landowner permission to visit other old mine sites.
A visit to the famed Madonna trees was fun – they’re dedicated to the parents of the current landowners.

Private lane – we had permission to drive this route
We had a USFS permit for this route.
There were lots of mines and prospect holes on the private land where Keith got permission for our ride.
Jack and his best friend enjoyed seeing the mines near where his father used to work on our Sheep Creek ride!
