Belfort is located up high in the Sweetwater mountains at an elevation of 10,800 feet! The 4 wheel drive road to it is pretty decent except for the last 1/4 mile! For that last stretch its a narrow steep set of switchbacks on the side of the mountain. Cat was FREAKED on this one! She turned a hideous shade of green!
But once up at the site of Belfort she knew it was worth it! It was gorgeous! There are three cabins, foundations and mine ruins remaining as well as a killer view of both Nevada and California. We had a blast exploring the cabins and ruins! OH! And when we were hiking, Pepper and I flushed out a HUGE grouse and it flew straight at Cat! I still cant decide if Cat or the grouse was more surprised! It was pretty funny! And the language Cat used to tell that bird off!...What a sailor she is!
