The initial plan was to visit to Yellowstone and see Old Faithful. Both I and my husband, had been to the geyser once when were children, many moons ago. Beauty beyond, words can’t do the park and its many wonders justice. Our revisit to the steaming mud pots, aqua pools of hot acidic water, and the many geysers, animals and breathtaking mountain views was something a person must see once in their lifetime. We were not disappointed after making the long drive.
Next on my agenda (I should say our agenda) was a visit to South Pass City, Wyoming. The location where the Carissa Mine and Miner’s Delight gold mines spurred a huge rush for riches. Now a historic ghost town, tourist can walk through the main street of this once bustling local where many of the original structures have been totally restored to their original glory. There’s even a creek and gold pans to try your hand at washing some color like the prospectors of old use to do. For those that know nothing about the reason this place got put on the National Historic Register, South Pass City is noted for being the place where women first achieved the right to vote. All thanks to Esther Morris, who’s building is still standing.
For me personally, I needed to see the layout of this ghost town in person for an upcoming book I’m presently writing.
Needless to say any road trip, be it a trip to the shopping mall, or an extended excursion across country, must include some barns photography for me. My terrible fear of heights, and mountains are high, meant that for most of our honeymoon trip, I avoided high mountain terrorization by being the designated driver. Therefore, my hubby snapped shots of passing barns. Many good chances at great barn photos where at the mercy of his blurry handling of the camera.
However, I did stop at a few barns I couldn’t pass up.
