Chris has only been working his new job for a couple of months so we didn't feel like taking off a bunch of time for Spring Break would be a good idea. We decided to follow him around for most of Spring Break.
Chris covers most of Montana, Wyoming, and some of Idaho. On the first couple of days we travelled with him into Montana and one of the stops I insisted we make was at Bannack City.
I've wanted to visit Bannack City for a long time but knew that I wouldn't be able to interest anyone in going with me on a day trip. This was a perfect opportunity because we were ultimately going to a location the kids wanted to go and this happened to be on the way.
Bannack City is a ghost town in Montana that was deserted after the gold rush ended. Unfortunately we had to cut our visit short because Chris had a conference call and we were in a dead zone. If I had more time I would have read the story of each home and business because the history was so cool.
I loved exploring this town and my family did too....I was surprised. I would love to visit again and take longer to explore the history. They had a cemetery that we didn't get to visit that I'd love to see again.
They've made this into a State Park and if you are a camper, they have a campground right outside the city. I kept teasing my kids that if we saw anyone, that it was just a ghost:)
