Old campsite off the beaten path - I love stumbling upon these old sites as I always envision a group of S. Platte pioneers sitting around the camp fire, slugging beers and talking about the day and the day to come.  Maybe this and other sites I've come across weren't even developed by climbers, but they always seem to show up near big rocks, so that's where my mind goes.  *Note the pile of cut logs waiting for the occupants to return.

Slugging beers? Well yes, but try blazing on LSD as well!

I swore I saw slugging bears when I read this

The old timers actually either got up early from either the Springs or Denver and drove down. Or they camped at one of the sadly all gone Top of the Word, Molly Gulch, Goose Creek, or Big Turkey campgrounds. If matters got real hairy at the Bucksnort, owner Tom owned a hut by the creek they'd crash in. I only know this from oral history. I was by no means involved.
