Dispersed and Primitive Camping

We can't be positive this is actually
Slagger Camp. There were signs pointing
this direction, but no markings at the camp.
Did a search and this seems to be the only
camp in the area.

Slagger Camp is like an old Ghost Town
There are three abandoned buildings.
Your imagination explodes... there is
a look and feel about this place.


Not sure of dates or historical background.
Maybe the buildings are around 100 years???
There is evidence of more recent use, including
a flush toilet???

Water Pump
Water pump on Road#15 near Slagger Camp

Near the water pump is another primitive camp.
We parked the car under the water and washed
off all the dust, when a couple old ladies pulled
up. They stripped naked and started taking a shower.
No insult to the ladies, but we didn't need to see that.

Sugar Pinecone
There are some Sugar Pine Cones in the area.
Measurement: 14"L

BEAR FACTS
We saw a dead bear on the Hwy.89.
The bears are shy of humans and will usually
run away, but don't take any chances.

WILDLIFE:
Deer are everywhere... about every half hour
another group would walk through our camp,
They would approach to within 20'

Wasp
He refused to mind his own business.

The insects were out in force.
Bees, wasps, and flies are the main cast of characters.
There are a couple butterflies making the rounds.
