The Mine Tour In Wyoming That Will Take Your Family On A Fascinating Adventure
Wyoming’s history has been one of cowboys, sheriffs, wild west bandits, and boom-and-bust towns. South Pass City was one of these towns that boomed with the gold rush and quickly fell to the wayside when the mines dried up. Today, it is preserved as a ghost town, and you can still visit a triangle of Ghost Towns in the area outside of Lander. After a trip to Atlantic City, Miners Delight, and South Pass City, you’ll want to tour the historic Carissa Mine, which was one of the most important gold mines in the region through the height of the rush.
