There was a pretty cool thread on SNORT beginning of the year about ghost towns and mining towns/sites and the trails to get there. For the most part, the trails are not rated 'hardcore' (though some are impassable now). I think it would be a pretty cool trip to explore some of the history around these parts.

Snow is melting in the lower elevations and a trip in about a month is doable. What kind of interest do we have in such an outing? It wouldn't be much of a wheeling trip as it would be an exploration trip with a lot of sight seeing.

Here's some links:

Any interest?

Yea I would be interested, As soon as I am trail ready. I just picked up some books yesterday about Whatcom County in the late 1800/early 1900.

Pending if I can get my rig working well enough, I'd be interested as well. I work at a bookstore and they have a map pack that has ghost town/sites in Washington. It has a few has a map for 4 different sections(NW, NE, SW, SE) and I could pick it up if there's some interest as well as get more info.

As long as I don't trash my rig or wallet in Moab, then I'm up for anything and everything in late April/May.
