I have not seen it in person, but now I would like to.

Are you getting paid by The New Mexico Tourist Bureau?

Right! That was too Quick

Slaughter Canyon Cave is a separate cave from the big caverns. You have to drive about 10 miles to get to it. It is a ranger guided tour. You have to hike 3/4 mi up a canyon to get to the entrance. The cave does not have the improvements of railings and sidewalks or lights the big cave does. You walk down a guano slope to get in. They used to mine guano in the cave. I slipped on the guano and while I did not fall I tore the ACL in my knee. The cave also has great rimstone pools.

The cave is named after a rancher whose name was Slaughter, not because of a sluaghter in the canyon.

Here's a few more shots:

Where Is This?

I do need help with pinpointing the location of this photo. Is this display still there?????

I thought it was around Fort Nelson, BC, but I have not been able to locate my notes on our Yukon Trip from 2008. My navigators camera date and time would indicate it was in the Fort Nelson, BC, area but it was a lone picture with no other reference for confirmation. We were heading NORTH at the time so it should be on the east side of the AlCan Highway.The sun shadow does seem to confirm this.

Did you see this agricultural display on your recent AlCan trip?? Anyone in that area know its location????

The display is of 3 COCKSHUT SEEDERS harnessed for a single pull. I would think, because of the excellent condition, they would be stored inside in the off season. They are on a gravel pad so this is a display site.

Any help would be appreciated.

Dave

Alas, I also must confess. You might hone your internet instincts on the following unofficial entry I just found on the internet. You really don't have to try too hard.

Much to my surprise I just saw this road on TV as "one of the 8 deadliest roads in the world" (I didn't think it was that bad)

I think I'll just tell y'all because the odds of anyone from the forum having been there is really remote.

It's on a turn out on top of Engineer Pass North East of Silverton. Yes, it's a 4WD road, or more like a trail, 12,300 ft. if I remember correctly.
