We were leaving behind the Fordyce Lake basin and it would be one hell of an ascension out of here. We were not on any trails and along the way we found what I call Hermits Rest which resides under this massive tree and above the lake. Its quite possibly Henry Hartley stayed here or even for that matter visited a fellow neighbor. Life was simple living up here when the town died only a few men tried a hand in mining up here and some lived as hermits. This cabin had a workshop underneath while a ladder to the second story where a den with a sleeping area was kept. After visiting Hermit's Rest we made our journey to the top of Hartley Butte along the way we discovered an actual gravesite. More then likely it was named after the founder of Meadow Lake and could have been the first location or claim where gold was discovered here. From on top you can see all of Meadow, Fordyce, Faucherie and Phoenix Lakes. After the journey we did some metal detecting downtown where the city once stood very little remains but a few nails and broken glass. It was my sons birthday also so we gave him a mountain man birthday with good food and a lantern as your birthday candle lol.
