Armpit, WY in the 80’s

Here are two pics taken at Armpit, WY (aka Big Horn/Horsethief Headquarters) taken in 1982.

The first pic shows a couple of ore buckets hanging from tripods, several trash cans, a root cellar, and two cabins. The cabin on the right was occupied by caver Barry Fuller who lived there pretty much full time. Barry’s cabin burned to the ground many years ago. The cabin on the left is the cabin we still use today as headquarters for the BHC/HTC cave trips.

The second pic is of a group of cavers gathered for a trip to BHC. Pictured are: Ken Stahley, Bob Garritson, unk, Mary Alice Chester, Greg Richau, Barry Fuller, and Barry’s Girlfriend – Armpit – Lovell, WY – Rob Pearce photo, 1982
