I walk the final 1/2 mile up from Silver Lead Spring to Wild Horse Canyon Road at 5500 feet elevation

Out here in the middle of nowhere, I stumble upon a memorial plaque dedicated to James Winkler
It immediately clicks that I must be at the site of "Winkler's Cabin," which reportedly burned during the 2005 fires. I had never visited Winkler's Cabin, but thought it was elsewhere, closer to Mid Hills campground.
