Event Description:
The tour offers an up-close and personal look at the abandoned mining town located in the high Absaroka Mountains. Tour participants will explore the storage/shop facilities, cabins, sheds, mining offices, various collapsed structures, assay office, and machinery remaining at the location. Participants may also take a short hike to view the beginning foundation of Amelia Earhart’s cabin, intended to be her summer home. Construction ended in 1937 when the famous aviatrix disappeared over the Pacific Ocean.

Although participants may drive their own vehicles, car-pooling is encouraged. High clearance four-wheel-drive vehicles are required. Tour members should bring chairs, weather-appropriate clothing, and a lunch. Pre-registration is NOT required. However, if you do not have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, the museum will help you find a ride with someone who does. Participants may join the tour group on site, but they must register with the tour once they arrive.
