100 years ago...before camp

This stereoview photo was shot over the East Fork Creek toward my camp along the Wild Boy in Conrad. This was taken over 100 years ago when the logging industry was cleaning the trees off of the Potter County hills. Most of those buildings are all gone. Today, just a few camps line that road where the train tracks ran.

Re: 100 years ago...before camp

I always heard alot about Potter County.My Ex-Girlfriend had a camp up there but we never made it up.I plan to make it up sometime.

My opinion is that there is to much concrete and pavement and not enough CRP and undisturbed land.

Thank you for the picture and the story.

Neat picture. I used to hunt in that area out of a camp on Horton run. That is a great area to hunt.

Great place to hunt and fish, I shot my 1st bear in 2005 in the area. Will be heading up that way in a few weeks.

Neat picture, our camp is right over the mountain on the other side of wild boy . Have fished the east fork many times in the past.
