Cabin ruins across Newcombs?

Has anyone seen all the ruins right across Newcomb's restaurant or know anything more about it??




Quite a lot of stuff to see!

That day I was actually on my way to check out Louie Newcomb's Cabin ruins, of which I did find as well

Neat! Older guidebooks really are a goldmine.

Somewhat related, but has anyone ever located the site of William Sturtevant's summer camp near the Twin Peaks saddle? I don't know that there's anything still there that would identify it, but it'd be kinda cool to find the spot and check it out.

I totally wrote about Sturtevant on my blog post hehe. I sooooo have been wanting to waste a whole day and look for his little retreat to get away from his business and crazy wife shaningans. I've tried to dig up more clues but will just have to to do some good ol walking and searchin. Charles Clark Vernon, historian I think took away most utensils and other stuff that belonged to Sturtevant in his lean-to. Hopefully it's house in some museum and not his personal collection :-/

Oh, I'm sorry. I got called away before I finished your entire post and totally missed the Sturtevant stuff near the end.  Embarassed

The only thing would be a flat area....being the cabin was so small that area would be tough to pinpoint even with the clues given.

A wild trip through history! Thinking about old guidebooks makes me wonder how much has been has been lost and reclaimed by the mountains. How much have the ancient trees seen come and go?

Thanks Missy for that fascinating report, the San Gabs have some amazing history created by the folk who made the trails that we hike today.   Your report really brought some of it back to life.

Cheers Phil
