Sids Mountain Hideout

Sids Mountain Hideout
Located on top of a Mesa called Sids Mountain in Emery County, Central Utah.
I believe Joe and Sid Swazey pioneered a trail to the top of this Mesa, Built a cabin there to conduct (long rope) livestock trading business. I believe Butch Cassidy, Elzy Lay, Joe Walker may have stayed there after the Castle Gate Holdup.
I took these photos about 1988. The original cabin had a collection of running irons stacked on a log. The pioneering tools were hidden in tree at the trail cutting through the Mesa rim rock. A more modern cabin is located at the same place, For hunters I believe.
