Bannack State Park, Montana





"Bannack State Park", Montana. We stayed in the campground. No water. Only a pit toilet. So it was a one-nighter campground. I don't do well not taking shower when it is super hot during the day & you are sweating like a crazy person. If it had been hot at night the hubby said it would be cool to take a rinse off in the river there. It was super cold water. The last 2 shots are within the campground. When we made our trip to Montana 2013 this state park was closed due to flooding ...this river was the troublemaker. Hard to believe that just a small river could be so mean??! We made a point in 2014 to finally see this park apparently a lot of the old building were harm during the flooding. Mighty waters they are. Always be ready. Beth ( :

Hello Beth, the old buildings look like they could be a movie set. The river does look like it is moving fast, I am sure the water would be chilly too. With no running water back in the pioneer days people would be bathing in the rivers. Great shots, enjoy your day! And thanks for visiting my post.

A pretty setting. The buildings remind me of a couple of historical interpretation places I've been to.

Beth, those old mining towns are fascinating, that they could have been so busy at one time and now sit so silent.
Not sure that I could cope with camping there. It looks really interesting though! xx

I would not do well without my shower and the comforts of a flush toilet. Great shots.

Another very interesting place you've taken us to visit. The river does look benign.

I'm not good with camping at all - So you have my respect.
You reminded me of a model friend from years ago - she would stomp her feet when some gentleman suggested camping and insist he "I want concrete under her feet, NOW - and let me tell you, I'm takin' a SHOWER, TONIGHT!!!"

you made me smile

This looks like a fun place to visit as long as 'the creek don't rise". Our cabin is by a river and it can do some shocking and amazing things if there is too much rain up in the mountains. I have seen our river rise 30 feet up out of its banks in an evening. so glad we are up on a ridge. I love montanna! Such a gorgeous state.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…
