Guy Starbuck
I’ve been exploring the deserts and mountains of the western USA for more than twenty-five years.

I started way back in the dark ages of the internet (aka 1997) to track my hikes and peak-bagging adventures.

I have always preferred to hike to the more remote and seldom-visited peaks. Along the way, I noticed historical mines, cabins and prehistoric rock art sites were being vandalized. History was disappearing. I decided to document what sites I could. Ultimately, these became more interesting to me than the peaks.

Over the years, I’ve been to thousands of mines and petroglyph sites. This website shows a fraction of what I have seen. This site has over 340 trip reports containing more than 10,700 photos. My collection at home has over 53,000 photos.

Although I can’t always reveal the locations of the places I go, I do hope to share some of of them with you. Please respect and enjoy.
