Wanted: a posse of 12 good men and/or women and a couple of high clearance horses/vehicles to help search for Willie Boy. He was last seen alive in 1909 north of Ruby Mountain. The trail has grown cold over the years, but I’m sure we can heat it up! The posse will saddle up on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at a time and location to be determined. Please bring the usual provisions (10 essentials). This search will be five to six miles out and back beginning at about 4000 feet of elevation and gaining 650 feet. The trail is a bit dusty and there are a couple of short steep up/down slopes.
If you get a chance to stream the movie “Tell Them Willie Boy is Here” (1969, Cast: Robert Redford, Katharine Ross, Robert Blake, and others), you can get background on the story and the nature of the terrain to be covered. Once we reach the Willie Boy hideout (lunch spot), we’ll talk about the Native American version of Willie Boy’s story
