Butch Casidy and the Sundance Kid

Everybody's favorite outlaws of the past, I wonder what they were doin up around Mosby in the Uinta mountains...  and no, they were not looking for the Lost Mines of Thomas Rhoades...



History tells us that it was after 1896 when Butch and Sundance  got together... but...

Although difficult to see in these old pictures, the date reads 1891. There are two locations where these names are found on the trees some 6 miles apart, and no sign of FWC. This clearly was not the way up and over the mountains into Wyoming, I wonder... I hope to get better pics in the near future...

Many thanks to Curtis Shupe for these pictures taken long ago, may he RIP. They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, I'll bet his son is the first to raise his hand to go get better pics... and try to discover what these two renigades of the past were up to...



The trees pictured above were carved along an old Spanish trail leading to the very place were Mel Fisher was taken  and did some digging in the late 80's if I recall correctly...  just above those diggings, is the second set of trees bearing the names of Butch and Sundance... Things that make ya go hmmm....
