Description:

Ulysses was once home to Idaho's largest active gold mine.  The original town had an ideal setting near Indian Creek, from which the mill processed low-grade ore for a major profit, but the community was set back in 1904 by a major fire that completely destroyed the plant and Ulysses' hope of riches.  Today, only a few dilapidated cabins and mining remnants are all that remain.

Photo taken on August 15 at the site of an old cabin about 1/4 mile below the GPS coordinate for this site.  The GPS coordinates are at a new large metal storage shed across the road from a very fancy large modern cabin....Makes you wonder what these people are doing investing so much in extensive dwellings in such remote areas.

 This "pile of rocks" just above my helmet seemed to be the exact point the GPS and maps were saying this place WAS.  Near a fancy cabin.  A friendly dog came over to visit with me during the picture.
