Visited the ghost town. We had a blast. If you have MT plates it’s free. Our local hosts suggested this little side adventure and it was perfect for a sunny afternoon. And the surrounding park is gorgeous.

We never get tired of visiting Bannack State Park- we enjoy special ranger led activities such as star gozing, and musical events held there in season.
