From Big Hole, we traveled the scenic byway through Wisdom…then south on the 278 and onward. Little did we know that as we came down off the pass, we should hit a bit of construction and resurfacing along the Grasshopper Creek. I got to speak to someone who had biked over 1300 miles and he was excited for the next UP. We were on our way to Bannack, Montana…once Gold Town…now, Ghost Town.
Ramona and I began our wander on the lower part of this map, at location #26. The map was collected from a brochure I purchased at entrance for $2.00. Click on any photos to enlarge.
Bannock State Park has a very detailed website that will give my readers an extensive history, as well as current events and ongoing projects. We shared a beautiful time, exploring.
At the Bannack campsite, Ramona and I shared a huge treat! Preston had brought us some strawberry shortcake in the morning and so, along with a swig of campground water, we snacked on that generous dessert and listened to the birds. It was nice to sit and do some more relaxing before moving on and out.
