Start of the Day
This Club run happened to be the day before Halloween! What better theme would ghost towns and mines be?! We began our day outside of Hill City. Filling the parking lot with Jeeps old and New.
From there, we made our way to the Southern Hills. Kicking off the dustiest adventure for some of our Club members!
Push to the Ghost Ranch
As we made our way south, I tried to keep us on nothing but gravel, and FS trails. Which proved to be easier said than done. We made our way to our first stop. An old ranch from the 1880s! This ranch once served as a stage stop on the way into Custer!
After eating lunch, and exploring days gone by, we loaded up to head to our final spot. An old iconic Beryl mine.
After making our way down outside of Custer, we had some fun climbs, and pretty views on the way in. Once we pulled up to the mine, everyone had a chance to get out and explore. The mine shaft itself had a weird construction, with some cool things to find scattered around. We all had a great time getting out together!
