Sunday, September 15, 2002. 7:00 p.m. Scaler Cabin, Forest Service, near LaBarge.

Scaler Cabin is a Forest Service restoration project, one of three in the district that can be rented by the public for $30 per night. It will sleep six in bunk beds, has propane lanterns for light, and has real hot and cold running water and an indoor bathroom with shower! The Forest Service workers had piled enough firewood near the fire ring that we will be able to enjoy a fire all evening without having to collect wood.

The cabin is located just south of Triple Divide area, from which water flows to the Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, or into the Colorado River and into the Gulf of California. The steep drop behind the cabin leads down to LaBarge Creek. North of the Triple Divide, our road followed the Grays River Valley, a naturally beautiful area. Despite the heavy dust plume of our six-vehicle caravan, the valley’s beauty was enhanced by the annual color change of the clumps of aspen trees-brilliant yellows, yellow-orange, and yellow-green. The drive probably covered 60-70 miles on the narrow, winding gravel roads, and it was exciting the entire distance.

As we turned off the main road toward the cabin, we slowed for a deeply rutted cattle guard and sighted a large black bear. He had been feeding on an Angus calf and was interrupted by our vehicles, so he was retreating up the hillside on the opposite side of the creek as we approached. We got clear shots with our cameras, but the distance was considerable, even with my long lens.
