Ride to Wilson Peak Summer 2020 Ride on some 2-track exploring some of the trails north of Idaho City. The old Jeep trail was pretty steep getting up to and leaving Wilson Peak but I did'er. Further on down the hill, I found the old 1880's miner's grave. Secondary reason to stop here at the miner's grave was a nearby geocache. On the way back home some threatening storm clouds started moving in. But before I made the mad dash out of the area I found the old RC-4 National Guard Crash site from 1990. Impact site. (On May 17th, 1990 at about 5:47 PM an RF4C Phantom Jet flown by the Idaho Air National Guard slammed into the mountainside at this spot. The pilot reported his flight controls were jammed and he was flying inverted with no control. He made the life-saving decision to call for an immediate ejection. The aircraft holds two crewmembers, both individuals ejected safely moments before it hit the ground. They were picked up a short time later, cold and shaken up but otherwise unhurt. There is a large impact crater where the aircraft hit. All the big and important parts were recovered for the accident investigation but you can still find many small bits and pieces of the aircraft at the crater and below it on the mountain. If you are familiar with this type of aircraft you will be able to identify a lot of them.) Some small debris which one can find all over the surrounding area. (If you visit the area, please leave the debris). And there is a nearby geocache that I found for good measure before heading home.
