Kirwin Ghost Town near Meeteetse, Wyoming.
The kids took us hiking at an old deserted mining town. It was last a booming little mining town in 1906. I watch “Poldark” on PBS, so I was a little familiar with the mining towers. (It’s a good show to binge watch by the way.)
Trevor told us that a paranormal group came out and did a documentary on the ghost activity around here. Happy to say, we did not run into any ghosts.

Boiler and mining tower. This is how they hauled gold up out of the mountains. The town fell because they did not have a nearby railroad to transport goods.
I didn’t take a picture of the outhouse but it was interesting. It was an outhouse, but one for several people at one time, like at a modern day public restroom with multiple stalls. With all the wildlife around, I’m sure you had a potty buddy for safety reasons.
Trevor and Henry taking a hike. It was a beautiful day.
Henry during one of our walks. This is the corn field on the other side of the road from the pasture full of cows.
Bailey rescued this sweet little black kitten and it LOVES Henry! They are so cute together. Henry pulls at it’s ears and tries to eat the kitty and the kitty just purrs and rubs itself all over Henry.
Henry and his dog Lucchese. Bailey upgraded her Jeep to a family version (4 door).
Len, Bailey, and Henry. Check out Henry’s cardigan! I know! It’s so cute! I can’t wait to show you! I’ve had it done for a while, but I wanted to wait until Henry could wear it for pictures to show you.
On our way home, we stayed overnight in Colorado Springs, CO. We were eating at a Mexican restaurant on the patio, and these critters showed up.
This little guy got a little too close for my comfort. He got right up under our table. I was taking a picture with my phone and I guess he thought I was giving him food. He got as close as his paws on the chair next to mine under the table. He stared at me eye to eye and for a second, I thought he might go rabid and get me. Just as a little fear hit me, he (or she) backed off and went on with their walk.
I found one of them up in a tree on our way out.
I have lots more to share, but I don’t want to overwhelm you. I will show and tell Luke and Henry’s cardigans next time.
Happy Fall Y’all
