Love Eagle County for all their efforts on the river corridor.
The campsites along the river appeal to me much more than the cabin. The real attraction there is the old cabin 200' upstream that is falling down but has some great local lore. As told to me by Edith Lederhaus(local born in Burns) a miner tried his luck there in the 60's. He was excited and hopeful. His sluice box was powered by an old Ford with the rear wheel off and a belt attached to a pump. His brother was on his way to join him in the adventure when the miner became ill. Edith's father checked on him and found him so ill that the arduous journey into Glenwood was necessary. The miner died at the hospital before his brother arrived and they could pursue their dream.
It would be great to have these stories verified and listed for us to enjoy when we visit this historic river corridor.
