Carbon County Confidential

Spent two days in Red Lodge. First day Annette did the laundry while I visited the Carbon County Historical Society. Some great photos of old time Red Lodge, Bridger and Fromberg. Met Shirley Smith at a book signing who runs the Little Cowboy Bar in Fromberg. Red Lodge Cafe for late lunch. Supper at a wine bar on Broadway.
Sunday up early for visit to Gebo townsite and cemetery, Fromberg and Bridger. Quick drink at Little Cowboy Bar and Museum - not to be missed - and on to the old ranch of Sam Gebo in the Clarks Fork valley. Very late lunch at the Garage Steak House in Bridger - no sign of old jailhouse. Back to Red Lodge via the Smith Mine, scene of disaster in the forties. Old mining equipment strewn across the landscape.
Listening to Terry Allen: Amarillo Highway.
