With my new Inreach device – I had freedom. I could now break my rule of only driving on an unused road as far as I could walk out. I headed to some old mining ruins south of the old city of Rochester.
On the road I ran into a geologist out surveying old abandoned mines. We chatted and exchanged stories. One thing I enjoy in my travels is talking with the local people. When I mentioned that I was staying the night at the Hells Canyon Cabin, I could see the place reminded him of happy memories. In his youth; he said, he and his buddies would go stay there, he said it was a special place that I would enjoy.
Off I drove looking forward to staying at the Hells Canyon Cabin. The drive was 15 miles from the main road through a variety of scenery. I won’t explain it, and leave it for you to discover if you go to the cabin.
The cabin was clean, bright, and didn’t have any mice.
