    BOZEMAN TRAIL- ERA 1866 -67 – Location: Highland City, Montana. Named in true story entitled The Crib Girl Who Finally Found Love, by Rex Bundy. To her customers, she was a Hurdy-Gurdy girl nicknamed "Shotgun Lulu" or Lulu the Russian but to Gold miner John Kern she was a woman far different from others and it was a story of love endured for 50 years as found in this complete and very rare western magazine.

    A fellow recently put out a book on the camp. Myself I have a chapter in one of mine. One well known lost treasure is here and another not so well known. There was a second camp next to it. The old man hung around to hunt for gold by eye balling nuggets.

    There is a story of one that took two men to move. It is in Treasure State Treasure Tales by Jean Moore (1950).
