    : thanks in advance for your recomendations

    Default Garnet Montana

    Garnet is said to be the best preserved ghost town in Montana. It is just off I90 east of Missoula and well worth the visit. Google Garnet and lots of pictures are available.

    Two MUST SEE GTs in Montana are Virginia City and Bannack. I've been to both of them and they are great. VC is a tourist trap and B is more authentic. Google "Henry Plummer" and "Vigilantes of Montana". If you're lucky you might even locate Henry Plummer's cache of stolen money said to be 20 minutes away on a fast horse (from Bannack) where he was hung! Actually Bannack is misspelled; named after the Bannock Indians, it was. Nearby is Bannack Pass (also misspelled) into Idaho. Further south, city of Pocatello is in Bannock County.
