Best Pit Toilet Ever


From our site at Bobcat Gulch I could drive seven and a half miles south and get a cell signal for the first time since leaving Hamilton.  This was a BLM campground with four spots and all were taken.  So I took care of business and then went back to Bobcat.  Back at our spot I decided to check out the pit toilet.

Yes, I was shocked when I opened the door.

I have never seen a pit toilet with murals.

When we left Bobcat in the morning I stopped back at the BLM campground.
Its named Tower Rocks because of these.

Maybe its just me but I get a bit giddy to be standing on the same ground as did members of the Lewis and Clark expedition 216 years and 4 days ago.

A platform for nest building.

I have been seeing bald eagles every once in awhile along the river.

I don’t know if immature bald eagles look like this.


  1. I only clicked on this because of the title.

    So thankful there is not a photo. 🤣

  2. I've never seen a Pit Toilet before, but that's the nicest outhouse I've ever seen, I love murals! Who would have thought your see them in a pit toilet?

    I've seen a few bald eagle nests over the years where I live. So cool!

    1. You’re right. I couldn’t correct myself on the post as I’ve had no cell service for days.
