A Raven in Silver City
Monday July 21 2008
Connie's friend John from Seattle came to visit us here in Owyhee County. We all drove up to the old historic ghost mining town of Silver City to look around.
It's at 6171 feet in the Owyhee Mountains.
Many of the old buildings have been bought and are being restored (and are required to be restored to look like they did in the 1800's).
We almost sat on this private house's porch, it looked so inviting. Notice the Raven on John's shoulder (John was thrilled to meet the Raven).
There are a number of the big buildings that have been restored, lots of mine shafts and very old cars that the Raven tried to drive.
One of the favorite stops was the restored Idaho Hotel and Bar , which, lucky for us, was open, and we got ice cold beers from the brass bar, and where the Raven played a song on the old piano.
