Silverbow and Brainwash Butte

I drove out to Silverbow yesterday to take some photos and drone footage of the historic mining camp for the Rachel web site. Two things of note I wanted to share:

On the way to Silverbow you pass the TTR view spot known as "Brainwash Butte". A year ago the road was in great condition, suitable for almost any car. After the rains this summer is is so washed out that it now requires high clearance and possible 4WD. It is not a county maintained road, so repairs are unlikely.

The gate in the TTR fence just south of Silverbow has always just been an unmarked country gate. After I published photos of the gate a few weeks ago in the attached link warning signs mysteriously appeared. See the photos above, taken 9/28/2017 and 8/24/2018. Probably a good thing.
