Elmore County Idaho Mystery Photo 4
Only three people submitted a guess to the Elmore County Mystery Photo this time. No one knew this picture was taken on James Creek Road near Rocky Bar, Idaho

This large aspen tree sits along side the road going from Rocky Bar to Atlanta, Idaho. The initials carved into the tree indicate is was done on June 26th, 1993. That was 16 years ago and the words are still rather clear and readable. Pretty amazing!

Hints Explained:
- Dutch Em and Peg Leg Annie traveled by this spot.
- Elmore County declared a local disaster emergency to exist in this area a little over three years ago. (http://www.elmorecounty.org/offices/commissioners/minutes/minutes06/05-22-06.htm)
- Number 126 refers to Nation Forest Service Road 126.
