At first I was kind of excited, but if you know me well enough, you know that almost everything scares me. Although I know “ghost town” doesn’t mean there are actual ghosts, (not that I believe in ghosts) but it was still chilling. Anyway, this town was a mining town founded in 1862 where there was a great amount of gold discovered, but the population dwindled when the gold ran out. (It made me laugh that we were here on the day we should've been searching for a pot o' gold) Perhaps the most telling history is Bannack’s sheriff: Henry Plummer. Plummer and his gang was accused for over a hundred murders in the Bannack gold fields and trails to Salt Lake City and was hung without a trial. While we were there, I couldn't help thinking about the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland with the “ghosts” dancing around – I tried to picture what life was like here during its peak.
