Mine was #2 the Rosebud Timber Reserve Road. I think it started as just a fire trail. It leads to a canyon, if you follow the canyon on down you would reach the Chases Woman Dam. This dam is on a small stream that comes in from the south, another 1/2 mile on you would reach the Little White River.The canyon is narrow,not many place where you could turn around. This time of year it would be full of snow and ice. In the summer after rain it might washed out. Ther is some fishing on this dam.

A branch from this trail leads you to the Iron Shell Cemetery,Chief Iron Shell is buried there.

Congrats Jigger Boss a terrific photo as were the rest.

Mine was #7. I had snapped a few photos while repairing the gate & fence next to the cattle guard. You can see the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains looking south. This is a county road now that runs through my summer graze and at this point is right on the old stage coach road that served the mines in the late 1800's before the railroad was built. The biggest was the Orient Mine, which derived it's name from the majority of oriental workers. The mine was closed due to a catastrophic collapse and never reopened. There are 80 miners still buried in it's depths.
