Part IV

After a very Very cold night camping out near AltantiCity, we stopped for breakfast at the Miner's Grubstake (we're now well known in town apparently) and then headed to Miner's Delight to check out the ruins. This and Atlantic CIty are both known stops by the Outlaws that ran stolen cattle in the area back in the day. Calamity Jane was also a resident and was known to have "serviced" the local miners and cowboys.






After leaving Atlantic City and Miner Delight, we headed out again to make our way towards our next camp. We had a lot of ground to cover and did some distance before making camp at an area called Castle Gardens, which is known for it's "shield" petroglyphs which are carved in an area of sandstone out in the middle of a huge expanse of open country. We had a great camp, Scott cooked a huge meal of spaghetti for the crew,(Thanks Scott!!) and we finished the day with plenty of libations around the campfire.

Castle Gardens.








The next morning we awoke to some frosty tents and clear skies.
