So primitive by today's standards. We've come a long long way...

Awesome report, Darkryder!

A bit of background: There are two passes with similar names on the Cont'l Divide in the Bitterroot Range: Bannack Pass, which you crossed, and Bannock Pass, a little farther north.

The old structure closest to the road, not the first one but the second, is an authentic stagecoach station. One doesn't see many of them out in the wild anymore. I learned this when I was developing the Forever West route. I was stopped at the Deadman Creek crossing on my KLR, pondering the path across, when a rancher came along in his truck. We visited for a while, and he told me his family owns 11,000 acres there, and homesteaded there in the late 19th century. He'd never lived anywhere else. I mentioned that some ADVers would be riding through that fall, and he said they'd be welcome. It was one of those chance encounters that make this kind of travel so rewarding.

The large sheds are the remains of an old sheep-shearing station, I was told.
