Dugout Dick’s caves

The colorful Idaho hermit Richard Zimmerman, called “Dugout Dick,” left many caves for itinerant visitors beofre his death in 2010. A brief article in the Idaho Press-Tribune reports that the Bureau of Land Management has filled in most of the caves because they were hazardous. A cabin inhabited by Dick will, however, be maintained, with relevant signage.
