Ernie Lombard, the namesake for the Lombard Trail, checking out the information kiosk at the beginning of the Lombard trail at Land of the Yankee Fork. Lombard served on the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation trails and recreation board. For 25 years he wanted to purchase the old mining town named Bayhorse.
