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.
What a lovely place! We have our adventures for this year planned... perhaps next year.

neat old relics you found.

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.

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
