Bannack is a ghost town from the Gold Rush era and a state park. It was the first territorial capital of Montana. It is off the beaten path, but has good roads when you know where to go.

Gold was discovered on Grasshopper Creek. here

It was fifty years between my visits to Bannack, but I’ll never forget sitting on the dusty street sketching the Court House.
