This is the first ghost town I have ever visited. My husband and I have been talking about traveling to the different abandoned towns in the West for over 30 years, but we never seemed to have the time or money. Other priorities always took precedence. I am so thankful to Shaun and Ann for taking us there on their vacation! It was even more exciting than I had anticipated. Now we’re talking about going back when we can spend a few more days looking around.
This is one of the old miner’s cabins in the ghost town of Bannack (Bannack State Park), which is about an hour’s drive from Dillon, Montana. Bannack was named after the Bannock Indians, but a clerical error changed the second “a” to an “o”. It was founded in 1862 after gold was found in Willard’s Creek and became the first capitol of Montana.
Photo taken at Bannack State Park, September 5, 2011 with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera. The reddish coloring is caused by the smoke filled sky, which turned the sun red, from the complex of forest fires along the Idaho/Montana border.
