Stan, I love your drawing of Robber's Roost! I first saw a photograph of it in Kent Ruth's Great Day in the West some years ago when I was in college and determined that If I ever managed to get to that area of Montana, I would go there and photograph it myself--I still haven't gotten there! Again, thanks--I love it!
Thanks, Margaret-Anne. Maybe it's just me, but Robber's Roost--and Virginia and Nevada Cities up the road--still have a strong feeling of the people and events that occurred there. As for the "Buried Treasure" legend and lore, I don't know whether to believe them or not. I have a feeling the bad boys probably spent most of what they took in as fast as they acquired it. Hope you can visit the Alder Gulch region some day and get that photo of Robber's Roost!
