    Default Burke Idaho, Giving up the Ghost

    I made another short video covering the old Silver Mining town of Burke Idaho. It has gone from over 1000+ people and is now down to around 17. I have used this video footage in the past (Hecla Buildings and what's left of the town) but I put more historic photo's in this one. This is only PART 1 and there is at least 1 more coming on Burke. There are other old towns within a couple of miles I hope to address. Keep in mind this is not a "Ken Burns Quality" documentry. Just a old guy with a camcorder, a computer, and way to much free time. Hope you enjoy.

    Thanks for a great show. Sometimes we go tramping all over the country and forget what's in our own back yard.
    Thanks again.
