This is the main road leading into Bannack State Park, near Dillon, Montana (USA). Bannack formed when gold was discovered in Grasshopper Creek (behind the fence on the far side of the road) in 1862. It was the first capitol of Montana. Bannack is now a ghost town run by the State Park Service. I think the population is 2 because two of the homes are occupied by employees during the tourist season. The fence is called a “haha”.
We felt like we were walking on the set of a Western. There was so much sagebrush that we were able to pick up dried branches to keep our campfire going for hours.
I’m entering this in the Walkways or Roads with a Fence challenge in the Which Ways group.
