    Wife and I left home early Saturday morning heading to Monte Cristo Pass, Utah in search of wildflowers. Patches of wildflowers were few and far between. And, as the worm turned, Saturday turned into a dark and stormy day. Not wanting to turn around and head home, I suggested to the wife that we head to a ghost town in Wyoming...about 1 1/2 hrs. away. How many muddy dirt roads do we have to take to get there, she asked...of course I said, not many, and they are good gravel roads.

    When we arrived at the site of the Piedmont ghost town the rain had let up slightly. Dark clouds looked like we would get more rain so I didn't have a lot of time to traipse around. As it turned out, all these photos were taken in light rain with a Panasonic DC-G9 and the PL 12-60 lens. P1016465 (1500x1125). P1016471 (1500x1125) (2). P1016466 (1500x1125) (2). P1016467 (1500x750) (2). P1016481 (1500x1125) (2). P1016482 (1500x1125) (2). P1016483 (1500x1125) (2). P1016492 (1500x750) (2). P1016452 (1500x958).

  2. And how were the roads? I often have to embellish the truth about the road conditions to my wife.

    Harvey, Piedmont is seven miles down a good, hardpack gravel road safe for any vehicle. Since I had not planned on going here originally, we were in my wife's Camry and I actually took it on some questionable two-track roads to a few of the cabins.

    go for it!! :drinks:
