"The roads and boardwalks are deserted. The doors sway in the wind. There are no children laughing and adults gossiping. The gold rush is long over.
It is but a memory left in old dusty journals. With nightfall the spirits return to tell their tales." - Sue Kaiser
Last week we stopped in Bannack and I took a short walk. I was mesmerized at what I saw. I would truly have loved to have spent more time in this preserved ghost town. This town where I would love to listen to the walls if in deed they could talk.
In the early 1900's the original "Governor's Mansion" (a one room log cabin) burnt down. Some of the logs were salvaged and were used to build a sod house behind this red roofed cabin. This was also the location of the "Governor's Mansion".
While I was walking back to the pick up a gust of wind began to blow. The golden leaves of fall began to rain down. I was fortunate to have just snapped a shot capturing the wind-dancers.
